My mom is going to be 81 years old and has Dementia. She still lives alone,in a low housing project and says she is not ready to move in with me. If her nails are not clipped short,she picks at her skin in many different areas until there is no skin left and is now a open sore. I am now over there daily,an only child,and work in Dialysis full time. She of course fights me about taking a shower. I just want to know if there is other people out there doing this and what steps did you take to help stop it. I am going to take her to her doctor for starters. Thanks.
