Can anyone give me any ideas how to get my mum involved in activities. She has been in a care home since January. I visit her regularly but whenever I go she is just sitting in the same chair looking out of the window. The home and staff are very good and try to get her involved but she wont do anything. I try to take her out for a coffee, they try to get her to have a walk, they do various things but she just will not join in. Tried to play a game of cards yesterday but she wouldn't join in so I ended up playing snap with another resident. I have racked my brains to think of something she would do but I cant think of anything. She just has no interest in anything. Don't know what to do as she seems so down and isolated. She is not on any medication and I am wondering whether I should get her assessed for anti depressants or something to perk her up. The home always say she is happy but in my opinion she has no quality of life. Whatever we try she just says can't be bothered and I just want her to come to life. Is this normal behaviour for someone with vascular dementia?
