My mom has not bathed for over a month. She was born during the war and all her life she has been very conservative with her water usage but this is ridiculous. I say "why don't you go and have a bath and you'll feel fresher". We live in South Africa and are in our summer now so it's a bit humid at the moment. She says she'll do it in the morning. She doesn't smell dirty but I'm a bit worried that she'll pick up an infection. Although she has dementia, she still has the ability to look after her hygiene. I don't know if she doesn't realize how long it is since she last bathed but to actually get her to do it causes huge fights. Any suggestions on how I can convince her to bathe without there being an unpleasant exchange?
