My Mom has always been over concerned with cleanliness. But it's beyond the point of ridiculousness.
No one is allowed to use her toilet but her. She's in assisted living and I'm embarrassed to use the toilet down the hall.
We can't sit on her bed.
If the physical therapist comes in an puts her notebook on the bedspread I have to wash it.
Everything must be put in a plastic bag.
Plastic bags are everywhere, to separate everything from germs.
She puts bath mats on the floor so when she gets out of bed she doesn't have to touch the floor to find her slippers. The bath mat also has a right and wrong side so that when you reuse the side facing up hasn't been on the floor.
Is this something the elderly do or is my Mom just crazy?
