As my grandma's dementia has progressed, she has gradually been losing privileges she once had -- driving, car, credit card, etc. She is still with it enough to be angry at us for taking things away and she doesn't understand why we have done it, no matter how many times we try to explain. This has greatly contributed to her depression. Who wouldn't be though? She NEVER leaves the house. The only time is for doctor's appointments or if my aunt can convince her to get her hair done. I always ask her to come grocery shopping with me, but she never wants to. Can anyone suggest something we can do or somewhere we can go that she would be more comfortable with? That would maybe give her a feeling of 'freedom' again, without overwhelming her?
