My mom refuses to bathe. So I have replaced toilet paper with wet wipes which she refuses to use. I have removed all paper from the home and now my dad says put the toilet paper back. Help. I have done what he asked but am now moving out as this is unhealthy for my mom and I want no part of it.

Elizabeth, call around to the professional caregiving Agencies and ask if they have a "bath aide" and the hourly rate.   This Aide will come in as often as you want and she will help your Mom with bathing only.   These women have a ton of experience and can get the most stubborn elder to get into the tub or shower :)
