Episode # 80
Dementia exercise is what we talk about this week. You see the lady that we have coming in from the church does not only sit with mom, but she also gets Mama fed and puts Mama is a chair with wheels on it and gets Mama to work her legs a little bit.
I have seen a change in Mama the past month as we’ve had this lady for Mama, because this lady doesn’t let Mama sleep all day. This lady gets Mama up this lady gets Mama fed this lady gets Mama to work her legs a little bit. This is something that we don’t normally do we let Mama sleep the biggest part of the day.
I’m hoping to get Mama outside this summer, not only to get Mama a little bit more exercise, but also to exercise myself because I’m getting just a small tummy. So I think that walking Mama around 8/10 of a mile circle hear from the house would help us both tremendously.
Yesterday I walked about a mile and a half from the store back to the house and my legs are hurting from the walk. Because I haven’t walked all winter long. I think getting Mama out in this circle in front of the house would not only exercise mom, but it would do me some good as well.
I can tell a difference in Mama since we’ve gotten this lady from the church to come in and sit with mom. We have been able to sleep on Tuesdays and Thursday nights for most of the night because of this lady working with Mama the entire time that she’s here.
