How do we get Mom to start peeing in her adult diaper now that she is bed bound?

Asked by

It's been a couple days and she still cannot make herself go pee. She cannot walk due to dementia issues and I cannot lift her to the transport wheelchair. She doesn't have much time left but I know she would be more comfortable if she could go pee. She is in a Hospice program.

Have you asked the hospice nurse this question? Do you think your mother would be more comfortable with a catheter? That option was offered to us and we did use it at the very end.

I agree about the catheter. It just goes against what a person has been taught all their lives....DON'T WET THE BED! ♥
