Skin infections becoming a serious concern. I am having hygiene issues with my husband. He does not have dementia. He's just naturally stubborn. He is also incontinent ( both ways) and not able to stand more than 30 seconds. If I can get him into a wheelchair, there is no guarantee he can get back out, so 911 must be called for help. His last, full-body shower was before Halloween. I wipe him down with the rinseless soap a few times a week, but his skin is breaking down. He has severe psoriasis, angry scabs on legs and elbows. All creases of his body are red and inflamed and his buttocks have actual "ridges" of skin on them. The skin actually bleeds "back there". Hubby is a large guy, over 350 lbs. In-home caregivers would have to come as a team. We do not have a walk-in shower, nor can we afford one. I have an inaccessible tub. I have purchased a sliding shower bench, but with his current immobility getting him on and off it is impossible and dangerous. It's just as difficult to get him to a doctor's office. He needs an MRI, but we can't get him to the facility-and to the machine with just transportation from door to door. It usually takes 3 or 4 Firemedics to lift him into his chair when we call. We need so much help, home care, financial advice, burnout counseling, etc. that I am not sure whom to call! His doctor says call 911 and have him admitted through emergency, then tell the staff his doctor recommends an MRI. Things continue to slide rapidly downhill here and I am afraid one day I will leave and just decide not to come back.
