Where is the \"chat\" tab at the top of the page?


I have the same problem with my 85 year old grandmother. Fortunately her health is still doing well enough that we don't have home health in although sometimes it would be a nice break for me. My solution has been to tell her to have her breakfast and finishing watching the show she's into while eating and that at 11 am (or applicable time for show ending) and then I must put her in the shower. This has helped a lot because she doesn't feel like I'm being bossy or impeding on what she wants to do at the moment. Before I tried this I was in she same position as you, she would drag it on FOREVER through the day acting like a stubborn child and I have way too much to do in a day to butt heads over her shower all day long! Good luck!


Now just when I thought I had won the battle with my mom concerning everyday showers she decides \"Oh I'm not ready to shower just yet. I want to see this show.\" Next thing you know it's 11 pm and she still doesn't want to take a shower. But when the home health arrives all of the sudden she's cooperative. letting them reach their own conclusion that I'm going bankers! Why is she reacting this way toward showering daily and at an earlier time of day!
