My mother is in her 80's, and she calls me up and says 'lets go on a cruise'. I've been all around England, on boats to Denmark, Norway, Iceland, various islands in the Caribbean, and to Canada. She reads a lot, and we get into discussions of politics, writing, her friends, programming/technology stuff, etc. She loves playing Scrabble, however my chance of winning in that game is about zero. I've played chess and various card games at various times, but not often. I like long trips in the countryside, so I've driven her around Florida, and Texas when she's been here.
I am new at caregiving at this point. I lived with someone with COPD for a year, but I simply shared the house and did not do much beyond drive him around from time to time. I can offer transportation, company, light cooking and cleaning, but nothing particularly strenuous.
