I received an e-mail from the facility that my husband has completely wet his depends. He usually let's someone know when he has to go. He was tested for a UTI and kidney stones but was diagnosed with constipation. When my husband talks about his deceased father I know a decline is coming. He has been talking a lot about his dad for about 3 weeks. What should I prepare for if anything.
Facilities can be difficult due to the amount of clients they have versus staff ratio. I can imagine how stressful it is for you to trust the care that is being provided and hope they are following through. Drop ins can definitely be beneficiary to see how they are doing and help with some peace of mind. You are in my thoughts and sending a virtual hug. Please make sure to take care of you, too. 💞
That you for your advise hopefully the facility will do that. I will talk with the memory director. I am so confused with the facility. I am having a hard time believing any one.
Gently ask him to use the restroom or gently say it's time to use the restroom several times a day. Take his hands and guide him there. I had to do this with my mother in law until she fell and now can't go on her own at all. I just gently tell her it's time to use the commode and prepare her to stand up. Hopefully this succession helps a little. Hugs and prayers, sweety
