My mother-in-law hates to bathe. It's always a fight between her and my husband. I'm home with her 24/7 and even when she hasn't bathed for 3 weeks, I never think she smells bad. My husband can be very mean to her about this, telling her that she stinks which, of course, starts the fight. She comes to me and asks me if it's true that she stinks and, honestly, I never think she does. Is there a reason for this? I've learned to stay out of the middle of this repeated fight they have but it bothers me that he can be so mean to her. I've tried explaining what I've learned about bathing and dementia to him but it never helps, so I have 2 questions about all this now. (1) Is there a medical reason why, even after not bathing for a few weeks, that she doesn't actually smell bad? And, (2) is there something I can do to help her with this situation?
