OK, I didn't want to horn in on someone elses post. There were similar questions. Just recently I asked for help, and had suggestions from here. Moms Doctor called a home health aid company, and they sent out a nurse to check her out. Well Mom threw a screaming fit. She said she didn't need any help, and if we tried she would kick and hit them. Needless to say, the company said that in that situation, they would not subject one of their workers, to Moms abuse. So NADA! How the heck can I convince Mom that she DOES need help? She insists she can can and does clean herself, and needs no help. If I even bring it up, she screams and yells that she will take her walker and get up and leave! I'm totally frustrated, and totally burned out! She's 96 and I'm 68 and not getting any younger. I haven't had a break in nine years.
