In the US, at least, the average person is used to bathing or showering nearly every day. It's so reflexive that many of us don't even think about why or if it's necessary. We just do. Older people may become less rigid about this regular hygiene for any number of reasons, some related to aging bodies and others related to lifestyle. It might help you (and them) if you learn why this is so and if it's a problem - or not.
