Hi everyone. First time poster, long time lurker. Firstly, a big hug to everyone who has or is caring for someone with dementia! I guess its a two part question Mum is living at home and i think you would now class her alzheimers stage as middle? I am her son and live 10 minutes away, i do a daily visit and perform assorted tasks such as meds, bins, weekend clothes/towels washing and if she lets me, daily hot meal meal prep. In recent weeks, she has been using more and more undies. Its now at a point of using three a day. She is very private and refuses to talk about issues, including the alzheimers. I asked her about the issue and get the brief reply that she has trouble getting to the toilet in time but says its very rarely. I seem to be having zero luck with getting her to use incontinence pads/liners with her insisting that there is no problem. Any tips on being able to progress with this sensitive topic? Also, maybe someone can clarify, is this just likely to be an old age issue and that the dealing with it is harder because of the alzheimers?
