Love this site
I need help with a lady that will not shower.The lovely lady will just say, that she has shower today, and gets very upset, with me, that I maqy think that she is lying.Your ideas are most welcome.I'm thinking maybe a template that maybe she can see,that today is t shower day. If you know where I can fine one this may help.
Thank you

Try letting her smell baby powder apparently the smell of it makes them want to shower worth a try

Hi Lynda,

Placing some wall pictures in the bathroom may draw her to the bathroom, if she is interested in birds I'd place a variety of bird pictures in there. Also try covering the mirror, sometimes if the person has dementia they don't recognize themselves and this can confuse them more.
