I was recently told by a family member that I need to make my mom go to things. (She didn't want to go to a hair appt this member pays for) I feel that for Dr. appts and such yes she needs to go, but on hair appts or to visit a friend in the nursing center should I? I know it gets her out, I know it get her 'stimulated' but if it causes anxiety or stress or depression is it really worth making her do it? I know she will ask about getting her hair done, or going to visit someone (normally she is having a good day when she asks this) but she also confides that seeing her friends in the nursing center depresses her. So really is MAKING her do things the right thing to do. I feel letting her work her way into things is better, she doesn't seem so stressed, confused, terrified, and it becomes a habit for her- part of her groove. Am I being to soft? Should I be making her do more?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
