Ask PoopReport: Son Needs Help Cleaning Mom's Nails
A very sweet person wrote it today asking for help with him mother:
My mum has dementia and depression. Psychiatrists tell me it is common for depressed dementia patients to play with their poop. She gets it under her nails and it is difficult to clean out by normal means as she is very sensitive and fidgety. I am looking towards soaking her fingers and nails to make the whole cleaning process less traumatic for her. I was wondering if the PoopReport community had any recommendations for an easy effective nail cleaning regime, preferably one that minimised the time for actual nail file work. In Mum's mind her nails are perfectly clean anyway, so she is not cooperative. Maybe there is a more effective soaking agent than warm soapy water. Any suggestions?
