I have spent lots of time visiting my Alzheimer's parent, first at a hospital, then now at a permanent care facility. I am not sure what to do to take up time during these times. There is not many things my parent is capable of doing. They can't engage in any type of game of any sort. They can't really talk, the words are all jumbled up.
So the things I have been doing is showing them photo albums of people, talking to them, mostly a one sided conversation with me talking, and I think maybe they understand half of what I am saying, and take them for a walk to the nice gardens to sit outside. But I feel like both of us get very bored.
I am looking for ideas as to what sort of things I could do or take with me?
