She has trouble talking using the right words. I have tried everything to get her to read out load, do memory puzzles, etc. My mom thinks it is stupid to do these things and she refuses to even try. Everything that I bring up all I get in return is her rolling her eyes at me. She just will not give me the time of day to do what she is told to do even by her doctor. I am an experienced CNA and work full time at the local hospital. I am usually really great with things to keep my patients busy. But not with my mom. Anyone have any ideas? It is so frustrating when she will not try. She is very stubborn and especially with me. She will not do any of her exercises, she is falling more now. She is not even eating what I may cook for her to eat. She just sits and watches tv. Depressed and ignores whatever I ask her to try to do.
