Hello everyone. My name is Bryna In October I because an IHSS provider for my county in Northern California. I just started taking care of 92 year old lady that has dementia. She recently had a CT scan of.her brain and the white matter disease is bad. She also had or still has a UTI. The hallucinations are scary sometimes. And yesterday when I got to work she was laying on the floor on her back with her feet up on the chair. She knew who I was and her daughters, they all live together, but she didn't not know how to get up. We all have to work together to lift her. Because the 74 year old daughter is legally blind and the 72 year old falls down a lot and is very unbalanced. So its like I'm taking care of all 3 of them sometimes. I'm just really tired. And the only one the oldest with dementia trust is...guess who....ding ding ding....yep I'm the lucky winner. I take pride in that accomplishment because if she doesn't trust you she won't eat or drink and gets very physical with you because she says you are trying to poison her. I have a big responsibility on me and as long as I don't get hurt or to overwhelmed I can totally do this. I have one concern though. She like to take baths. Allll the time. But I have to lift her. What is the best way to lift some one up to get them on their feet to step out of the tub. I think I might have hurt my back a little bit.
