Hi, I live with my grandmother who has dementia. She particularly loves to spend hours in the toilet. This includes her bathing and also her peeing time whenever she visits the toilet. For instance, when she bathes, she can take up to 1 to 1.5 hours for a simple shower.
We found out the she spends very long in the toilet during her bathing/peeing time majorly because she will also wash and scrub the toilet floor as well as the toilet bowl EACH time she visits the toilet. My grandmother is reaching 84 years old, and we have advised her countless times not to wash/scrub the toilet as she may slip and we have delegated the house chores among us. Since she has dementia, we understand that it is difficult for her to take our advise.
Is there a way to prevent her from cleaning the toilet daily each time she patronize the wash room? I even hid the pails, toilet tools and detergent to prevent her from cleaning. But in the end, she will use the pails available in the toilet to "scrub" the toilet floor. I sincerely hope for any advise that can assist to minimize this situation.
