Myself and my husband are in our early 70s and care for my 92 year old mum. She has mid stage vascular dementia. The big problem is that she is almost blind, can walk a very few steps and gets extremely travel sick, is quite deaf and refuses, except on a rare occasion, to wear her hearing aids. I am at a complete loss as to how to keep her occupied. She wants my company all the time, and has to have either conversation or some kind of tv, music or story constantly. She just wants to be entertained. Her tastes are very limited e.g. Miss Read or biographies of certain favourite tv personalities (so long as they do not name drop or have an accent she cannot pick up easily). I have tried everything I can think of, but the bottom line is she would like a close friend. sadly they have died. She has 2 living sisters but cannot see them because of covid and too far to travel. I am stumped and mum is so unhappy. Any ideas how to keep mum happily occupied. ps she never dozes during the day. The worst time is the evening when I would really like to rest. However, if I put something on the tv mum does not like she lets us know, so we try to watch something in the kitchen for an hour in the evening. During that time mum will come and say she is lonely and wants company. Please, is there someone with more experience who can point me in the right direction. We have always been close but this is putting a strain on all 3 of us. However, we do not fall out over it, but do our utmost to stay calm. Many thanks.
