We go buy ice cream and a scratch ticket and she talks about old times. She called me tonight (on her cell phone) to ask if we're going out tomorrow again. But we're going on Friday.
She seems to desire more company/interaction. My mom is only (only?) 80 years old, but it seems she desires the company of others more at this time in her life, than she ever did before.
She said a woman in her 80s at the same care home asked if it's not tiresome for her to get out so much, but Grandma said I'm sitting in the freakin wheelchair, how could that be tiresome.

Yeah that seems to be the case. Grandma isn't nearly as medicated as the other residents either and they even seem proud of the handful of pills they get.
My 80 year old mother tells me that more often than not she feels tired of living and is ready to go. I don't understand that way of thinking, but then I am not extremely old and nor do I have to deal with the mental/physical degeneration.
