My grandma currently suffers from MS, she is at the stage where she can no longer walk independately, using a wheelchair outdoors and a zimmer frame indoors.
If she goes out anywhere except to the shops, even in the wheelchair with me pushing she gets so tired that the next day she falls, often ending up with her having to call an ambulance because she lives on her own.
Due to this, she is, well I’m assuming she is scared of going anywhere and stays indoors and won’t let me take her anywhere, I have took to staying over and taking her out that day as she seems to be at ease when I’m there, but I can’t do this all the time and even so she gets scared of going out and doesn’t see the point.
Her husband, my grandad has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and is no longer living at home, they say he will pass soon.
She never tells me anything so I don’t know what’s going on in her head but I do know she’s fed up with things as they are. We are trying to do our best but is there anything we can do to try to help with her moods?
I try to have a joke with her etc, and this seems to work for a moment but long term I’m not sure what to do.
