The apt smells really BAD! My sister goes to visit at least once a week and she has said that it is bad enough sometimes when she cleans that it burns her eyes! I've bought anti-stink products and my sister has used them, but it doesn't seem to help. My dad has been told that there have been complaints about the smell, and if things don't change they may be asked to leave the retirement village. It doesn't seem to affect him. It seems a pity that my mother may have to suffer because he's just too lazy to change his underwear after he leaks.
He has said that if he changed after every time he leaks that "They'd be covered-up in 'em!" I don't know what that means if they just take out the garbage every day. I think that that's just an excuse to keep doing what he's doing, stupid or not.
I used to think that it might be be due to the expense. A big box of them out at Costco is over $40 dollars after all. Then I did a cost break down and found out that these little items are only about 50 cents apiece. Cheap, in my opinion, if that'll solve the stink problem, but what do I know?
He recently had to go to the VA for treatment of a bladder infection. My sister tried to tell him that that was probably due to his not changing his underwear often enough, but he just ignored her and said "It could happen to anyone."
My sister and I have run out of ideas other than putting him in a Skilled Nursing facility, but dad has said repeatedly that he'd rather DIE than go to a Nursing Home! If he doesn't change his 'wicked ways' (joke) he may get that wish!
Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks in advance.
