This Week's Carenote - 07/30/13

 

I'm taking care of my 81-year-old mom who is living with dementia. Mom has arthritis in her knee, making it very difficult to walk without aid. What I need help with is bathing her. I've crossed the threshold of "Eegads, I've gotta give Mom a bath." (You could say we've worked out who washes what.) But lately, because of her knee, getting into and out of the tub is becoming more of a problem. Is there a place I can take her to bathe her? I live in Rancho San Diego.

Any advice or info you can give would be a great help.

Thanks, Jerry
