drichard - if your mother's home is a health hazard, the state adult protective services can step in...it means letting them take charge of a lot (which is not always easy) and they can place her out of her home where she will get care. if they do, they will help with the payment depending on her finances how much. it's not a pleasant option, but it is an option if that is all that can be done. my mom has dementia and urinates in toilet mostly, some incontinence, and some pick-a-place-and-go-here.

my Father is also peeing his pants daily. He wears undergarments but his pants always have a yellow stain on them. My mother has not brought him to the doctors because she said he will not go. He also will not take a shower. We are all so grossed out and he fights us all the way with keeping clean. What do we do. He just won't budge.

Thank you. She hardly wears the brief in the house. She urinates on the floor, the sofa, in the trash can, plastic bags, everywhere. She has symptons of pre-dimentia and she has diabetes. I'm waiting to visit her doctor with her. She has medicare and I was told she doesn't qualify for medical to get a caregiver. The local senior center doesn't offer much help. The health educator constantly says my mom has alzheimers since her dad died from it and treats her so rudely. The house smells horrible and I think it's a health hazard.

I take it that your mom is urinating on the floor, or a chair? Is she taking her adult brief off and doing this? Does she have dementia?
Does she have a doctor? If so give them a call, they are your first course of action. Is your mom on medicare, medicaid? You need to find out what resources are available to her in her town. It sounds as though your brother is not in control of the situation. How about a hired caregiver. I don't know what finances are like. Is your mom a veteran or was your dad? Look through the yellow pages in her town for a senior center, DES office, etc.
