well try bth with lots of bubbles to cover her body- my mom used to fight showers but i got her a chair in the tub and she is really sensitive to warm water- she would say it was hot and i would say no its not- cuz to me it was borderline cool- but then she would complain that she was cold- so i got a small portable proane heater - turn it on to warm up the bathrom- and turn the water on cool- works great- use a shower hose to wash her bode- i let her washe her privates- she leans head back and doesnt get water in her eyes- when she says does not want to take a shower - i say mom its not fair that i have to take care of you when you smell - and she complies- Z(dementia/ alxheimers- 79yrs. old- as far as the siting - just do it and say i given up a lot for you and you can let me sit by my husband- not sure what her medical is - she alzhemiers too?- good luck!
