Hi , I just had a similar issue with my dad - I went to my local small pharmacy and the lady there was fantastic - she took me in a little room to discuss it privately gave me lots of free samples to take home to try and gave me her recommendations as to other people's advice etc. Worth a try ?My elderly Mum, 87 and very slow on her walking frame, just diagnosed with Alzheimers Dementia, middle stage, is going to a hospital appointment week after next.
Occasionally, Mum is bowel incontinent - can someone please recommend a good and really dependable brand of pull on incontinence pants for her - but must be for bowel rather than just urine incontinence, so that both she and I do not have to worry about her having an 'accident' while she is away from home.
Is UK Age Concern the best website to order from? Do I need to order the size of her hip measurement? She is a 42 inch hip which seems borderline between medium and large.
Hoping to get supplies from NHS soon once I can organise it. Any recommendations greatly appreciated, as I need to order ASAP.
Many thanks for any answers.
