My mother has moderate dementia. She can't enjoy the things she used to do such as reading, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles or cross-stitch. She reads the same page of books over and over again, only reads the headlines of magazine articles and newspapers and looks at the pictures, and no longer has the comprehension or concentration to do jigsaw puzzles or crossword puzzles. When I try to suggest other things like adult coloring books, sticker by number books, other crafts, or card games like war she says they're too childish and she's an adult. I've looked online for suggestions and they are all things she'll object to outright like rummage boxes or giving her towels to fold. She's always hated housework and cooking so having her help me with those tasks is a no go. I'm in an apartment so no pets to involve her and no garden. Without anything else to do she watches TV all day and gets confused about what's real and present in her life and what's on tv. I am working from home right now and have to concentrate on work most of the day(I am working in the next room in an open floor plan so I do make sure to engage in conversation throughout the day) and it seems to be very wasteful to hire a caregiver when I'm home. Local senior centers are closed and she refuses to even consider adult day care even 1 day a week. I do make sure to make a local excursion to a store each day so she gets out and gets some stimulation. She gets so bored but shoots down all my suggestions and doesn't have the capacity or comprehension to continue to do what she used to without giving up after 30 minutes or so. Anyone have any suggestions?
