because they think they just did then get mad at me. My mom gets very nasty wants to know if she stinks. Claims she just took shower when I know its been days. I just don't know how to deal with this and even if I get her to take a shower, washing her her long hair is even more difficult.

If it has been more than a week, tell her, yes she stinks and pretty soon she will have cooties (head lice) all over.

In the upper left hand corner next to "AgingCare.com" you will see three horizontal lines. Click on those and the search function will drop down. Type in "shower" "bath" - keywords related to personal hygiene - and you will see that this is a problem for many people. Read through the threads and the answers as they contain valuable and helpful information for caregivers. Good luck.
