I asked another neighbour. (female)
She said, ‘tell them the lady must listen to, and follow through on, advice given to her.’
She stressed the importance of this aspect.
She knows from personal experience with elderly relatives that they don’t always do that.
She also said, ideas from nurses are often more valuable than those from doctors.
This mustn’t override a doctor’s determinations of course.
But by being in frequent contact with patients, nurses are likely to have a much better understanding of their patient’s real needs.
My neighbour also suggested something like jigsaw puzzles, in spite of any difficulties with hands.
Coordination of mental and physical action is important.
If the lady wants to improve, she must listen to advice and try awkward things.
That’s the lot from me I guess.
