Relieving the boredom


Hi everyone,

Both of my elderly parents have had PD for several years and are now housebound, with carers calling in four times a day for personal care and to help with medication. Mum enjoys baking with one of the carers although can’t stand up for long, while Dad doesn’t have many interests. and has become very insular since having to give up woodworking. I have bought playing cards and tried to get them to do jigsaw puzzles, but these were met with a less than enthusiastic response! It would also be good for them to have separate interests. Just wondered if anyone has any brilliant ideas of things they could try (they can use a computer a bit). Thank you.


A few suggestions:
