    Sorry I know there are threads here and not sure where they are again. My sister liases with the care agency, I do the doctor and lawyer stuff (I'm POA), and community nurse. But recently mum has started to say she doesn't want bedding changed, (she doesn't like carers dirty hands touching her bedding), I was wondering if she had started wetting the bed as she did say she gets up in the night.

    She shouted at my sister, as sis organises the care agency. Mum got it confused that she thought her hairdresser was coming at the time of the agency worker. Now mum is shouting she doesn't want people in her house. I know my aunt used to lock herself in the bathroom when visitors arrived.

    my Q? is should I tell the community nurse. :confused:

    And where was the thread for this.

    tell her, because she might meet with resistance when she goes.

    I am sure they have come across this before and have a stratergy to do what they came for

    i'd say its quite possible she is wetting the bed.( and aware enough to want to hide it)

    Thank you, that is what I was thinking, I just hope the bedding does get changed and noticed. This was how we found out she was stockpiling her diazapan
