She is 88 years old with "mild" dementia. She has been living with my husband and I for 1 year, 8 months now. She has some degree of urine incontinence and sometimes stool. I do her laundry (and everything else) so I KNOW how bad she smells. She has a safe bathing environment, a grab bar in the shower and refused a shower chair. I am so very tired of the battles.
Her pre Alzheimers self would be horrified.
