Feeding the Ducks

One of the things Mum really likes to do is to feed the ducks and geese at the creek. She never forgets the ducks are there and always wants to give them bread. Bread isn't really good for ducks, but the occasional bit won't hurt. 

When I take her out of the nursing home for the day we often stop and feed these ducks. She loves it. 

I'm dreading when the day comes that she's too badly behaved to take out for the day, yet I know that day is probably coming. On the way back to the nursing home at day's end, she's generally quite obnoxious, though not as bad as before she started on risperidone. 


  1. It's great that you're mom is still active and can go out with you. The pictures and the video are so sweet of her feeding the ducks. You'll treasure that video more and more as time goes by.

  2. The mom who always thought of herself as a nurturer can now nurture ducks instead of cats. Wonderful pictures and video, Louise.

  3. my mom used to want to escape from assisted living; always had bags packed and always asked,"Why do I have to stay here" No she's content. She does NOT want to leave. According to her mind she has been there about eight years. In reality she has not been there for quite six months. It's nice to see that your mom is still getting out. I hope things are easier for you now than they were when I commented last time.
