She is combative when touched, try to dress, clean or bathe. I feel she no longer is able to process language and stays in bed unless it is to eat. She seems to no longer understand what I am needing to do for her. I am scratched and bruised almost daily. I am her sole caregiver as I am an only child. Funds are very limited and nursing home placement is not an option for financial reasons. I quit work to care for her so her social security is needed for monthly expenses. I don't know how to communicate with her any more and get her needs met.
