I really need some advice. I have not posted here in awhile, but the lady I take care of has started scratching her face until she is getting sores. I have tried everything, benadrly cream, neosporin, face creams, ect. She has dementia and no matter how many times a day she is reminded to stop, she continues.
I have major concerns about this , as she is cognizant on many levels about some things. Not this, she is self-mutilating. I have expressed my concerns to the family and am told to continue to remind her to stop. It is not working!!!! Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated..
