I care for my parents and know my mum has incontinence I believe my father suffers mildly but as you can understand it’s a fairly sensitive subject to approach. I’m a bit overwhelmed by the situation as caring for my parents can be pretty hard but dealing with incontinent makes it more difficult. I’m looking for some advice on the care of them? Caring for someone with incontinence is pretty new to me and I want to do my everything I can to keep them dry and clean and to protect their bed and furniture. Any information would be great thank you! 😊
I’ve been looking into products for my mum as shes more open to discuss this with me but from what I understand sanitary products are different to incontinence. I’ve been looking at pull ups for my mum shes can get around but is limited to an extent. My mums problem is she gets a last minute urge to go to the toilet and then cannot make it on time. do you think a pull up would be suitable? are there any particular brands and places to purchase from you would recommend?
as for my dad hes much more private and i don’t really think this is something he wants to discuss with me. We have noticed that hes changing much more frequently and the beds wet and isn’t from my mum. i was thinking of maybe some pads at first to give him to see if he would use them. what do you think?
Any advice would be great thank you! x
