My mother-in-law is 85, has no sensation of needing to go, or of being wet. Will wear depends, but does not have sensation of wet, urge to go. Refuses to believe that she has wet herself, saying that she must have sat in something wet. She will wear adult diapers, but forgets to change them and leaks. The doctor has said that there is nothing he can give her if she doesn't even have the sensation. She is very stubborn and becomes very agitated if her smell or wetness is pointed out to her. She even hangs up dirty clothes to wear again.
She has no short term memory or focus, but is otherwise healthy.
