She is 92 and used pads for 3-4 years. I think she is trying to save money and/or hassle. I've avoided discussing it with her, but I will if it puts her at any risk.

I have found some issues with my parents (90's) its easier to fib a bit, if it isn't a big issue, and overall helps us all, which definitely has to include me. A creative way to "fib" about this one is to 1/say you're part of a study which takes a year, 2/after a year, you've been specially selected to receive another year's supply as compensation for the year 1, and 3/after 2 years of this maybe your mom will not ask where the pads are coming from?

Yes, or you can order and have delivered to her home...telling her they're free now that she's 92. LOL. Using the TP should be fine as long as she is changing it thru the day or when it's wet. If it isn't too bad, she could try panty liners which are inexpensive. Worry more about damage to furniture, car seat, etc.

Sorry, that posted before I was ready...

I was going to say, if you think it is really the cost, to buy at Costco or Sams, and tell her that her insurance pays for them, and there's no cost to you. That might make her feel better about using a disposable.

I doubt if there would be any risk, but the toilet paper won't absorb as much as the pad so there will be leakage.

Sounds like she's had a little change in her congnition.
