My Mother has dementia and Parkinson's. Always a stickler for cleanliness, she now refuses to bathe. We bought one of those special tubs.

My stepfather is care giver and can't get her to use it.

Ruth has Alzheimers and there are times that taking a shower really upsets her. Other times not. I have noticed if we do bath time early in the morning she is more likely to not complain. What I do with her is explain everything, step by step to her.As I am explaining what I am doing next, I give her time to adjust to the idea. Good luck with this, I am sure others will have suggestions also.
