My father with dementia plays with the "contents" inside of his adult diaper. How can I stop him from doing this?

This is so hard as we think of the health issues involved, let alone the messes to be cleaned up. I'm assuming your dad has dementia and he just does the digging around because he's distracted and interested by something he doesn't comprehend. Then he realizes somehow that he's in a mess and gets scared.

I don't know that there's much you can do except try to find a pad that is of a different design and maybe then he'd have a harder time getting it off. You can experiment with the clothes, but he is in a phase you may have to wait out. I'd love to give you a perfect tip but I don't know that there are any.

There are many people on the site who can relate, so any tips out there folks?
