There are many reasons why someone has less of a desire to get out of the house for a well deserved outing if only to enjoy the day.
Maybe seeing loved ones that they don’t get to see as often as they would like. Maybe fishing, visit to local park, take in a movie,
whatever suits their needs to get some relief from the depression, if only for a few hours.
Perhaps it’s the constant pain, feeling exhausted, worrying about bathroom availability, being on oxygen, weight gain/loss, needing wheelchair, or scooter.
I would like to hear from others how they are able to help motivate their patient or loved one to enjoy some of the life they still have.
No one knows when the lord will call so we need to take advantage of the remaining time.
How do YOU help with motivation? What activity can YOU suggest that may encourage someone to do something to make the day more enjoyable than staying home?
I know there must be some patients as well as some caregivers that could use time away from home.
