New reader here, finding your blog insightful. My mother is in between stage 5 and 6, and we are now starting in-home care for help with bathing and dressing (she stopped bathing quite some time ago, but I have finally convinced my Dad she needs to be guided through it from start to finish.) My question is: what are the words I should use when she says "I don't need anyone to come in and help me, I take showers all the time!", or "what! Are you going to put me in a home now?" Many thanks, Joy
