What can I do to keep my mom clean?

She refuses to bathe and if I would let her would keep the same clothes on day and night. I am at the point where I am using baby wipes to at least wipe her off every day. I sneak into her room to remove the dirty clothes so I can wash them. I am so tired of this daily battle.

Is your shower one she can feel comfortable in with a seat and easy to get into-it is a common problem I guess they can not smell orders very well so they so not feel that they need to wash-would a bedbath work as well for now.
