Elderly mother refuses to take a bath

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.
