My 83-year-old father lives with me and I am his full-time caregiver. Up until about 1 week ago, he still went into the bathroom occasionally but seldom does now and every night he soaks the bed. I've used the most absorbent diapers possible plus and booster pad and it still goes everywhere. Do I get him up in the night? What do others do? What do nursing homes do?
Also, because of his stage of dementia, he does not respond well; that is, he resists me trying to move him, encourage him to stand up, etc. What works for others?!
