I've been caring for my father after my mother passed away 7 plus years ago. He was diognosed with parkinsons within 6 months of her passing. He is declined 100 fold in the last 4 months. He is having trouble pulling his pull ups on and off to go to the bathroom. His fingers are numb so he can't tell if he is grabbing them. Any ideas to help? I really hate this disease! He's miserable and just wants it to end.

Thanks for the info. We are pretty much with him full time. I'm trying to keep him independent and in his own home as long as possible.

Dear Cheryl,

I know its hard to see your dad struggle. My dad also used men's Depends products. It was only in the last few months he struggled to pull up his Depends and started to have accidents. At this stage might want to consider hiring a full time caregiver or assisted living or a nursing home.

He needs someone to help him. My mom needs bathroom supervision 100% each time. Otherwise it becomes room and laundry cleaning if left to her own devices. It is the steady march of the disease. You may have one last option to request an occupational therapist evaluation, but their response may be the same
