My mum justs sits in her chair watching TV all day except for when she makes a drink or eats her Mr Kipling cakes by the boxful. She seems to live only for her lunch club 3 times a week and twice weekly shopping trips. She never had any hobbies or read books before dementia and was never keen on cleaning or cooking and wanted to go out all the time. I made her scrapbooks and bought her photo books, which she though stupid. She can read OK and has glasses for watching TV . She does not like having visitors, family or Alz befrienders included (slams door on them and us) and is not remotely interested in family news. When I call daily she asks the same questions about her lunch club bus and having enough money repeatedly with no change. She complains about boredom and being lonely but I have run out of ideas what to do to help her. She has been like this for over 40 years!
