She enjoys her daughters spending time with her. I have two sisters, one that works at the facility, evening shift, so she is there to "tuck" mom in at night and my other sister and I switch off spending some time with her during the day. The ONLY thing she will do is go to bingo which is twice a week for about
an hour. I learned today that she went to a wine and cheese social they had. She refuses to leave the facility. If she does leave, she is totally confused and returns in a horrible state. She has no other interests at all. She use to crochet, knit, volunteered, had friends. She gave everything up about
7 years ago. She is a stubborn as the day is long and you cannot convince her to do a thing. She lays in bed most of the day and listens to the TV -- that is it -- the CNAs and social director knock on her door and tell her what activity is going on, but she refuses to leave her room.
