Ideas for Dinner / Evening / Bedtime Schedule Challenges?
@becsbuddy and @debbraw share more activities that you might find useful in this discussion. https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/activities-to-share/ Some are good for evening activities. The sundown time is the toughest. Is she able to help with setting the table?

Thank you, Colleen. No my mom can't set the table. I haven't found tasks (and I've seen many great suggestions on this site!) that interest her (or she can focus on long enough to complete) for more than a minute or two.
I think I've come to the conclusion that my mom's developmental abilities are similar to a 2-3 yr. old and she can't do much without assistance. One positive is that her energy level isn't like a 2 yr. old so I'm not "running" after her all day, and she's often content to lie down on the couch (if she can see me.)
