My partner has advancing Alzeimer's and she is doubly incontinent, she now has increasing tendency to take off her pads and wet/soil the bed, compounding this she'll wee/poo on the bedroom carpet. Any suggestions, thanks?
Our care facility suggested old fashioned overalls.
Do you have contact with anyone who works at a care facility or a home care agency? If not, you might just call and ask for help with this as it sounds like it would be a huge problem. They might have some ideas.
Is there anyway you can remove the carpet and replace with a different kind of flooring? Expensive, I know.
You can buy a full-sized mattress cover (they are plastic or similar). I didn't like the sound of plastic, so I put that under a full size mattress cover, which is washable. Once you have sheets on the bed, you can also put a large sized pad on her side of the bed. They sell washable ones, as well as disposable ones. As for the carpet, I don't know, maybe just vacuum with Carpet Fresh/baking soda every day, even if she doesn't have an accident. Good luck
Thanks Debra, by the sound of it you have it far tougher than me, you have my every sympathy.
