What can I do about my Mom having numerous "accidents"?
My mom has dementia and has started to have "accidents" (wets herself) during the day. I usually get her up early and take her to the bathroom and she hasn't had any problems in her bed, but during the day she has 2 or 3 a day. Some days she doesn't have any problems. Today I had to wash her bedding and help her change clothes twice. When I ask her what happened she just says she doesn't know. Her type of dementia makes it difficult for her to express herself. She also puts the wet clothes back in the closet or drawer. I have tried to get her to use garments for bladder control but she doesn't like them. I am really lost as to what to do. Any suggestions?
