Reply to "Missing Mom"

Hi Melinda,
You've mentioned that you worked in a long term care nursing home as an activity director. Did you work with Alzheimer's patients? I'm curious to know if you found it difficult to get them involved in activities? I realize it would depend upon the stage of the disease, how that would impact their ability to be involved. My mom has never been one to really socialize much. She had her small group of friends, but when living in assisted living, hardly ever participated in events, just a very few.Now, she has Alzheimer's and is living at my sister's home and she refuses to go to day care and I am just wondering when the time comes and she needs to be placed in a nursing facility, if she will participate? Just wondering what your experience is with Alz patients, if any....thanks in advance,
Miriam
