Is he looking for something meaningful, in a contributionary sense?
My Mom gets desolate, when she feels like we're treating her like a pet, or babysitting.
My husband is stubborn. He has forgotten how to do the things he used to do,(following instructions. and gets confused if I say to much at one time) I do all financial, actually everything. He dont like to play games, but I get him to play once in awhile.He don't remember how to play any games. but I do it for the communication. The things he used to cant remember how to) He loves to Acrylic paint, but hasn't touched his paint brush for almost a year. Talking about what he does do🤔just sits in his chair all day , sleeps, bathroom and gets his tea. He loves treats . Ice cream, love McDonald's Carmel Frapis. SO he goes with me on my errands and he gets the treats he loves.Once in awhile I get him to walk with me , not far. 😊😇 Loves it when we go shopping for him.He loves to talk to our kids. ( grankids) and a couple of other people he is comfortable with. Hes stubborn. Only does what he wants to 🙄Have to love him 🥰 BLESSING Debbie
Having the same issue with my mom. She really had no hobbies to speak of before she got dementia. Now she just sits in her room at her memory care facility with her door shut and watches TV. The staff says they can't force her to participate in activities, but they do try. She's a bully to my dad and won't listen to him, or to me, when we try encouraging her to participate. My dad just avoids confrontation so he won't push her.
It's so frustrating!
