And is there a way I can prevent or stop him from flushing? My father is 62 and lives with me and my family. Currently he's fixated with all things water, except for showering. For health, sanitation and conservation reason this is our biggest problem now. He will sometimes wet his hands in the toilet to slick back his hair or wash his hands in it. He also flushes the toilet multiple times when he's in the bathroom. Which he goes into a lot. For the flushing, I've tried turning the water off as well as disengaging the chain from the latch. He found a way around it and added to the problem. As for the hand in toilet part. I have no clue what to do. I could put a lock on the bathroom door and have him wake me when he needs to use it. And go in to Monitor him. But there always seems to be repercussions With change. I might wake to find a mess outside the bathroom door, in the kitchen sink or worse. I'm trying to be as innovative and crafty as he. So really any and all ideas and solutions are appreciated.
