She wont' admit it because she would never have bugs. Refuses to put on cream prescribed by her doctor. We have brought a new bed, bedding and bug bombed her room. Shampooed carpets. She has Alzheimer's and dementia.

OnlyDaughter59, when it comes to having a clean house no older woman wants to hear that there are bugs in her house. What she hears is that she is failing at her "job".

I remember trying to gift to my Mom a cleaning crew to come once a week to help clean. My Mom was horrified, you'd think I was gifting her a box of spiders, how dare I think her house wasn't clean. So I just gave up. Even though there was enough dust to write the Gettysburg Address on her dining room table... [sigh].

As for the cream, maybe put the cream into something else and tell your Mom it's a new beauty cream that will make her skin very soft. There are times when we need to use "theraputic fibs" to get the job done.
