Using Google Calendar on your end is a great idea to keep track of your socially engaged mother! It sounds like your family has willingly taken on the “soccer mom” role in organizing her life.
I did a bit of research and found an item on Amazon that (although I have no personal experience with the product) you may want to have a look at. It’s called the Lifetime Voice Calendar Talking Organizer. It would require a family member to record your mother’s activities or, if your home is too far away, you could enlist the help of a caregiver at her assisted living facility.
The calendar’s reviews are generally good and it appears easy to use. I would guess that hearing a family member’s voice reminding her to attend a “bridge game at 4:00pm” or “chair yoga at noon” would be a pleasant reminder to mom of your love and encouragement to stay active.
