I am 25 years old and dont get embarrassed by much. Times are VERY different now than they were in my grandmothers youth. She has dementia/alzheimer's and is in a nursing home with my grandpa. I am VERY involved with my grandparents and am lucky enough to have them in a home that is a short distance from me so I get to visit often. My aunt went today cus things have been hectic since we just moved to a new apt. She said she walked down my grandparents wing and my grandma was in her wheelchair by the bathroom door and had a BM accident in her pants and had been digging behind her back in her BM and had it everywhere. My aunt put the call light on so she could have help cleaning her up, but my grandma was just crying hysterically. She just kept putting her hands in front of her face saying "I.......I.......I...." and crying, crying crying and more crying. How do you help them over the embarrassments? The accidents, the incidents. I just want to make this all better for her. :(
