She has incontinence so sometimes she rips off her briefs when they are dirty, she is unable to put another one on but she can put a small blanket over herself and/or a shirt over her chest but doesn't. When I say let's put something on, she does. I joke that she should move into a nudist colony because this naked lady behaviour has started to become her norm. I explain that I don't walk around naked in the house and that it's really not appropriate, especially if she is alone and someone comes to the door. She also turned away the new physical therapist last week, for no reason and then missed her Dr appt. Went by wheelchair van, checked in but then went clothes shopping because "she didn't want to wait". Oh and she slipped out of bed this morning. Didn't hurt herself but this is becoming normal too. Like maybe 10xs in the last 4 months. She does have repeat UTIs. Which she calls TUI's🙄 (her strokes) so maybe this is part of that? Or maybe this is something else? Her Dr isn't helping me.. though he did say he wanted to do a CAT scan to figure out why she has bowel incontinence but she has had that ever since her strokes..so I'm not sure why that would be necessary when they have her original ones from two years ago. It wasn't explained to me..just a VM left on my phone from the nurse.
But now she doesn't feel it..she will be sitting in her own feces and not even realize😐
So, Im not getting any help from anyone..I can't even get an aide from the VA agency to relieve me because they won't work with her anymore. I'm in the process of hiring an independent contractor but can only afford mornings. Anyway just wondering if anyone recognizes these signs? (BTW, she is not on painkillers or meds that would make her drowsy). O.K.,
