Elderly mother refuses to take a bath
(San Antonio, TX)
My elderly mother has dementia and refuses to take a bath.
My elderly father tells her to take a bath but refuses also with him.
I am one of their daughters who lives here with them. I help as much as I can but its so sad to see my mother like that.
She had a heart attack and since then she has gotten dementia.
She was so active before in wanting to keep up with her hair and nails. I just wish she would be the same as she use to be.
I know that having dementia has caused her to not be herself.
We all love her dearly and will continue to support her as much as we can.
I know we have to be strong for her.
