Today we met with Joyce, the retired police office who now has a business called Whatever It Takes. Mom seemed to like her, though she likes everyone usually. Joyce volunteers at Prairie Adult Care so she and I hatched a plan to have Joyce take Mom to the day program for a few hours a day, a few days per week. Mom seemed agreeable to this, but she's seemed agreeable to lots of things and then when it comes time to do it, she loses it and gets upset. I would probably try to be home on the first few days so that Mom wouldn't feel like something weird was going on. Joyce helps out with the group when they exercise and when they go swimming, things Mom likes and needs to do. I hope this works out, I really want Mom to have a place to be, doing something she enjoys, during the long time that is winter in Minnesota.
