Excessive Bathroom Trips

Started by

My mom from time to time indicates she needs to go to the bathroom. My mom is blind and has advanced dimentia. So I take her when she makes the request. Once I get her into the bathroom she is able to do everthing else. Her request have been as many as 22 in an 18 hour period. She has been to her primary care doctor as well as a urologist and they find nothing wrong so I beginning to think when she gets bored and/or agitated she starts to make these request. Has anyone else experience this with their mom?
