Diaper Or No Diaper??

Diaper Or No Diaper??

The nurses at the hospital said not to use diapers because they hold the heat and moisture next to the skin and you can’t tell if they went to the bathroom with one on.
What do my experienced fellow warriors say? Tonight Ernie took his gown off, pulled the pad out from under himself and used his gown to pee on.

Does Anyone Else See Features Of Paranoia In Their Care Recipient?

Does Anyone Else See Features Of Paranoia In Their Care Recipient?

Even at her best, I see things that are “off” with my significant other. The dementia waxes and wanes, but she often sees people who aren’t there, and asks me about them. “Is anyone else out there?” is a common question I receive at home. Suspiciousness factors in; if I am perceived to have been gone too long at the supermarket, she’ll be angry and accuse me of meeting someone. When my financial advisor called me at home on business, she accused me of having an affair with her. It’s hard to… read more
