Incontinent

Incontinent

My dad usually does okay in the bathroom but has been having accidents. Just wondering if it's the disease?

yes. They don't know when they have to go. Get Depends and pee pads for the bed and furniture.

It does come with the disease. We use Depends and they work well. I clean up the toilet and clean the bathroom a lot. More laundry too. At least he isn't cutting them up all day like he was on the 4th of July. Yipee

We had to put my dad in a nursing home. He gets dressed everyday and sometimes eats with the others. It was a hard decision but my siblings helped. The help treats him like family. 8 months was all we could have him in our home. My brother or I visit everyday. I enjoy the patients.

Can you put a small heater in the bathroom to keep him or her warm?
