How on earth does someone collect a urine sample from a lady with Alzheimer's who refuses to allow it? Mum has a live-in carer, who is wondering whether she might have a UTI. GP has visited, and asked for a sample to be provided, but Mum won't allow the carer anywhere near her and the bathroom. (Mum has never allowed any personal care - insists she is fine washing etc by herself.) I live 100 miles away. The carer is at a loss to know what to do and so am I. FWIW I am not at all convinced that she has a UTI; I saw her last week and think she is just generally deteriorating, but I am not an expert and the carer has much more experience with dementia. She isn't sure either but naturally wants it checked out which is why she called the GP.
