I am a full time carer to my mother-in-law who has Alzheimer's and vascular dementia. She has lived with us for the past 14 months. I am also a mother with two daughters (25 and 23) and 17 year old twin boys (who live at home) and I have two grandsons (one 4 and my new grandson who is just 4 weeks). I cannot spend every minute with her and am struggling to find activities that she can do during the day. I have tried the TV and putting the radio on, but she turns them off as so as I leave the room. She's not interested I jigsaws, reading magazines, colouring. She won't join me in the kitchen whilst I am preparing dinner and when she receives visitors, can't wait for them to leave. She sits in her room and just stares at the wall! She attends a day centre twice a week and enjoys that, but once she's home she's back to staring at the wall again. Am in the process of getting a memory box together for her but I need help in finding activities that she can or even wants to do. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
