    My mom has Alzheimer's she easily gets agitated whenever I told her to take a bath. Also, gets agitated if I wash her underwears and clothes. How can I let her take a bath and wash all her clothes - stinky smell is unbearable. Need help.

    Dealing with dementia clients; I would like to know how you get them to respond. I've been sitting with a client in the bathroom. She has been sitting on the toilet for hrs and refuses to get up. Her daughter(main caregiver) and I are unable to get her up. She us nit responding; initially it was "leave me alone!" and now not responding at all. She's closing her eyes and tuning us out. What do we do in a case like this as she is much too heavy to lift.
