I work in an aged care facility. What would you write on resident's evaluation when the resident does not participate in any of the activities despite of encouragement by team members? And communicated that living in an aged care is like living in a prison. Resident used to participate in activities but changed. when encouraged to join in outing before COVID 19, will plan to join but on the day will change the mind. A Catholic and used to attend the church service but declined to attend for a while.
