That would be great to share your hobby with her. My grandpa had Alzheimers, and my grandma would go to visit him at his facility several times a week. They brought in a photo album to keep in his room so that people visiting could go through the pages, pointing out people and reminding him of their names and funny stories, but you could help her get into scrapbooking to make an album for him. Also, my grandma knew how to play the piano so she would go to the common area and play for quite a while during most visits, to the enjoyment of other residents and staff. If the facility allows it, perhaps she could do some portable stamping in a common area - it would be something she could do while spending time with him, and may find others there who would enjoy it too.
