My husband's mom lives with us. We try everything to get her to take a shower. Usually works a couple times then she just refuses and the smell is terrible. I suggest that he not give her any smokes until she showers; but he will give them to her. I know she is his mother, but I just can't handle the smell and what it does to the furinture, let alone what it makes the house smell like. If he begs her to take a shower and she is okay with it, he doesn't follow through and she doesn't take one. She will tell him she did, when we know she didn't. If he gets her in the shower he doesn't make sure that she is actually cleaning herself. That's when I or my son go in to make sure she is using soap and shampoo; the whole time she yells at us and tries to stop us from putting shampoo in her hair. I try telling him she is going to get an infectation or worst, but he just will refuse to let her ride anywhere with him,.
Any suggestions, like move out so I can breath fresh air...LOL
