Hospice will catheterize your mom.

If your mom can't get to the bedside commode and won't use an adult undergarment the only thing left is a bed pan. I'm not sure if that's what you meant by "urinare". I'm not sure what that is. Bed pans are notoriously messy though and difficult to use for a woman, especially a larger lady.

Have you tried just putting a Depends under her and not taping it? Just having it there for accidents?
