I was called by my mom's facility that she refused to take a shower. She told them that it was too early to take a shower. I tried to have her come and talk to me on the phone but she refused. Didn't bother me as much this time. The caregiver said that she will continue to ask her to take a shower. I'll stop by there tomorrow to see if she took a shower. I will be able to tell by her smell. She is 89 and I think that she is just being stubborn tonight. She was fine with me earlier this afternoon. Although she was sleeping when I got there. She went to bed late last night.
I am putting into my mind that it might not be that much longer for her. At least she knows who I am still. She was diagnosed last June with mild dementia.
People that age can be stubborn,right? I was told that even a shower once a week would be fine. BUT with her incontinence, she needs to be washed up. I trust the people who are there to continue to do a good job with her. She was okay at first. Maybe I should have had her go to the bathroom before I left and change her brief. But didn't. Will have to remember the next time.
She is okay during the day,from what I was told.
