Against COVID

An elderly in my family who suffers from cognitive impairment and needs to take her to the hospital for follow-up consultation regularly. However, she is stubborn. Therefore, it is difficult to persuade her to wear a mask for going outside. Even if she wears it, she quickly removes it. I often quarrel with her and become exhausted. I worry about her being infected, and at the same time, I feel remorseful about the deteriorated relationship with her because of the epidemic. In this case, how should I get along and communicate with her?

Under the COVID-19 pandemic, the physical and mental health of the elderly at home have been affected. Are there any tips for them to fight the virus?
