Dementia and incontinence. My 79 yo mother with Dementia has incontinence issues. She is in denial about her Dementia. She has anosognosia--a lack of awareness of impairment.
How do i get my mother to wear Depends or other incontinence garments? My mother has frequent accidents but will not wear them. My mother's friends are aware that she has Dementia. One of her girlfriends called to tell me about an accident she had while at a lunch. How do I explain to my mother's friends that she will not wear them? How can I get her friends to understand the nature of the disease and I am doing the best I can--being her live at home caregiver?
