Tuesday of last week, I enrolled my mother in a respite day care program (it's only on Tuesdays). When I picked her up she had just had an explosive bout of diarrhea that leaked through her pants. Poop everywhere. (In case you are wondering, she said she'd had a good time and kept bugging me to take her back.) She was fine Wednesday through Monday. On Tuesday, I sent her back. Exactly the same pattern. Wednesday, she was fine. On THURSDAY (today) I sent her for an assessment day at a more permanent dementia day care program. I picked her up at 2:30pm -- AGAIN, same situation. So we are wondering what exactly is going on. Both places seem to serve people plenty of coffee, which could be a problem. She also isn't going to the bathroom before we leave in the morning, because it's earlier. I'm thinking of putting her in adult diapers before taking her, but in normal situations she doesn't need them. Anybody have ANY idea what might be causing this?
