Mum is 95 and has AD. She is in a residential care home. Mother can be extremely difficult at times but is also very frail. She spends most of her time in bed I gather. I live away and can only go by what I am told. What is concerning me is, they say she will not go into the hoist so is obviously not having a bath, will not allow anyone to shampoo her hair. Now surely before long she is going to start to hum. What can I do, has anyone got any magical answers please? Mother has also started to fall a lot, is all of this following a pattern please? Sorry for all of these questions but I am just about to have a word with the Home's Manageress and I just need a bit of info before I do.
