Does Anyone Have Problems When They Use The Toilet They Never Flush. I Have To Continuously Go In After Him To Make Sure He Flushes

Does Anyone Have Problems When They Use The Toilet They Never Flush. I Have To Continuously Go In After Him To Make Sure He Flushes

My husband also has this problem. He forgets how it works. He originally comes from Central America where very few people have indoor plumbing(he's been in the states almost 40 years) and very common to use a bucket of water to "flush" the toilet. So, with the tendency to remember the things of his youth, we occasionally find him using the dog and cats water bucket to "flush" the toilet.

acceptance is not normal with disease but this is one where it must be done. My former military sons keep saying improvise, adapt and overcome. I didn't come to this advice easily, it took time and prayer.

Car a, that is my problem. He has so many bowel movements a day and leaves all the residue . I am a pro at cleaning toilets. If I show him, of course he denies it. Wow. Does this make any sense? No part of this disease makes sense.!

All the time. Plus when she brushes her teeth and spits into the sink she never rinses the sink, then it dries. I just keep a bottle of cleaner right there and clean the sink once a day at least. Won't do any good to get after her so I don't even bother.

My Mom doesn’t flush either anymore. Every once in awhile she will. She doesn’t usually know where the bathroom is, she’s lived in this house for 50 years.
