Find Care & Housing
My 100 yr-old aunt takes care of her 97 yr-old sister with dementia and she won't go into the shower.I think it's a dementia thing. My aunt hired a neighbor (who has experience caring for seniors) and she comes in once a week to get her to shower for a very inexpensive rate (it only takes 1 hr or so). Would your Gramma do a sponge bath? Like other commenter asked, need more info.

You have not filled in details in your profile.

Does Grandma live with you or your family, or is she living independently?

Does she have any health concerns?

Is she a fall risk?

What, if anything, has the family tried so far?

Oh Boy, how about helping to do the shower? Kind of a buddy system.
