Hi! The gentleman I care for is very resistant to any movement. The family puts great store in exercise and I feel pressured to make him walk etc
When I try he gets very firm bordering on aggressive.and flatly refuses.
I have tried to make it a game, flirt, bribe.... He is resigned to move for them - but not for me
Would very much people sharing their experience and any suggestions

Hi Allison,have you tried armchair exercises or armchair dancing.If he is cognative enough you might be able to suggest that you might get into trouble if he doesn't help yopu by exercising.
you could appeal to his better nature by saying how happy it would make you if he just tried walking a short distance for you. Good Luck.
