Is there a possibility to hire a PSW that can be with her to meet all of her needs, like a companion, to be able to provide all of the energy that is required?
We once had an individual that really required lots of TLC and etc...the family hired an individual from an outside agency to come and visit at "peak hours"

Have a staff member play different parts that would require her assistance, Maybe with accounting, Residence Council, Housekeeping, Dietary, Welcoming Commitee, Recipe selection for Daily Meal Planning... Training of Volunteers... It can either be Mock or for Real

I know it is easier said than done! But think of all of the people you put a smile on their face verus the challenging one`s . Sometimes the challenge can be motivating or exhausting... You are doing a great job and don`t give up!

It`s really hard to please everyone!
