I've a flatmate @ my care home who screams a lot, which has now started @ night. She *hates* where she lives but never wants to leave it/even her room, never wants to have a shower etc,. she never talks any sense & says that staff have done nasty things to her, hit her, broken her back, refused her drinks [said drinks *all* refused by her after being asked several times!]. She never rings for help when she needs it, then complains when nobody comes. When she isn't screeching all she seems to do is sit bitching about other people.
There's staff here who I don't think are cut out to be carers [although we get on well] – they've said this themselves – but there's no way I would still be living here if all this had happened !!. She is in constant pain – but she also cries when she drops something, she's too hot/cold, etc., & cries for me to get staff for her.
If I woke up one morning w/o any pain, I'd be worried, but I've only been at the point of yelling a couple of times, despite being unable to speak through pain sometimes.
She has learning difficulties. The daytime yelling doesn't bother me cos I can put my music on/go out, but I am a CPAP patient & don't want to get ill through being knackered again!
Any ideas ?? Thanks
