Trouble with cleanliness

My SIL has EOA at age of 50. He was diagnosed over 2 years ago. He is now rebelling when told it was time for a shower. He doesn’t remember to change his underwear when getting dressed. Does anyone have suggestions on how to make this process less stressful. Thank you

People have shared many ways to deal with this. If you will copy and paste this on one of the caregiver boards you will get a lot of ideas.

What worked here was showering together with a reward pending.

What about someone there immediately removing the dirty clothes and leave only the clean available in the bathroom
