Care recipient (cr) is agitated argumentative and resistant to any suggestions of the caregiver cr

Try: Sometimes the best approach is to re-approach the situation before anger sets in catch your breath or just walk away and return in a few minutes with a new approach or new wording to the request remember as in most areas presentation is the key to success if the cr balks at a certain request or activity try focusing on a pleasurable activity first and then an essential activity such as a game before a bath or reading a book to the cr before getting dressed in the morning try singing the request while this may seem silly to you it may diffuse the anger and resistance of the cr if possible give the cr choices either in the order things are done or the time when you give choices you are giving back a measure of control
