How do I get my 89 year old father to take a shower?

Message 1 of 1
My Dad is 89 and in good physical and mental health.  He is a bit unsteady on his feet.  He lives in his own home and we have a gal living in the small house on the ranch that looks after him and the ranch.  Recently he has given up showering and needless to say his hygenie is poor.  Our gal offers to stay in the bathroom with him while he showers but he refuses. I know he is afraid of falling.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.    Deborah
