My 76 year old Mother is awaiting a diagnosis of dementia. Since having a UTI in December she has had urinary incontinence. Has had an ultrasound and has an appointment with incontinence clinic shortly. She seems to be largely unaware or not bothered about being wet or the smell of urine that surrounds her yet knows to put on incontinence knickers at night and is able to put we pads etc in bin. Any tips on what we can do to help her would be most appreciated.
Pads can often feel very foreign to those with Dementia, as they feel very different to normal underwear. She might be uncomfortable in these due to their feel.
How is her mobility? Do you think she would be able to put on and remove pull up pants in the day? She might feel more comfortable in a pull up, as these feel more like pants.
