  1. Yes,I have to fully agree.Gaining co-operation,communication and overcoming resistance is so important and these stressful moments are quite often the most difficult for the care giver to cope with.I'm reaching a point thou where what ever I try is does not always work.At this point I leave the room or go to bed for an hour.When I come back the person has come out of their disturbance.
