I'm caring for my Dad who is currently functioning at the stage 5 level, with some stage 6 behaviours creeping in. No formal diagnosis as yet, we are still waiting for the appointment from the memory clinic, but mentally he is losing his abilities very quickly. Physically, he is incredibly fit, strong and stable. I've read around loads, and come across some very helpful advice, but I can't find anything that relates to my issue. Dad can dress and undress himself independently, but has no clue about the difference between clean and dirty clothes. It's not that he has a preference for wearing a particular outfit over and over, just that as soon as he's taken an item of clothing off he has no idea whether it is clean or dirty. If you ask him to give you his dirty clothes, he'll give you one or two genuinely worn items, but will also give you things straight off the clothes airer or from his wardrobe and drawers. Up until now we've managed by giving him a laundry bag that he puts his clothes into as soon as he takes them off, then I immediately take that out of the room (out of sight, out of mind) and give him clean undies for the next day - this was the only way we could guarantee his undies were getting changed as he kept giving us clean ones when we had the whole stock in his room. Now he has carers looking after him four times a day and Dad is back to piling his laundry bag with whatever has been drying on the airer that day, including undies. The carers understandably can't know what's clean and what's dirty. He's already had one UTI that hit him very hard so any advice on how I can make sure his dirty undies make it into the wash (and clean clothes don't!) would be really appreciated.
