Hi Susu! That is great that the move went so well! I don’t think it’s a bad idea to ask her to go out, but, if she’s happy and enjoys herself there, I would just let her hang out there. Many of my residents with dementia have routines, too, and I find sometimes that when that routine gets upset, that’s when they have issues. I’m really happy to hear that she’s doing well and that visits with her are going well, too. Maybe bring her a home-cooked meal and you can both enjoy it there. That way, you can still eat with her.
Up to you on the call! Just send me an email if you want to call again!
