My grandmother starts screaming and yelling when in the shower on a chair. How do I bath her?
I never heard such a thing from her. She was getting showered at the SNF without problem and this setup was not much different - shower chair in her bathtub and I got her a 6' detachable faucet. It had been six days she was home without bathing. She said she was soaping herself at the SNF, so I gave her the soap and closed the shower door and turned to get her a warm towel when she started yelling 'I want out', etc. and calling for family members that don't live here. It's been two days since and I tried to ask her what happened so I can fix it. She talked about being confined, being told what to do like in prison, etc. What was that all about? I don't know what to do if it happens again. She keeps saying she doesn't do anything so she doesn't have to take a shower.
