Re: Elderly mother with lifelong mental health issues

Hi @Shaz51, sorry to hear your mum is so reluctant to have extra help and exercise classes. Keeping active is very important and I wish my mum would be more active. Unfortunately, she finds it very hard to get motivated and being in respite doesn’t help that as everything is done for her.
