My mom has had issues with incontinence for years. She also has arthritis so it was difficult to walk but she at least would get herself to the bathroom. She was always a very clean person. Caring about personal hygiene. January of this year she was hospitalized with a kidney infection. ( She refused to go to see her doctor in a regular basis). When she came home from the hospital she no longer tries to walk. She says she can't. We have taken her to see her doctor and were told she would benefit from physical therapy to strengthen her muscles. She now will over flow her incontinence pad severely without even calling us for help. (She has an aide 24/7) She does not care if she is laying in her own urine. Yet complains of skin breakdown. She has had a few UTIs. She says she does not "feel" the wetness. Could this be true? She refused physical therapy. Does not want to go out anymore. I know she wishes she could just be in heaven like my dad and older brother. (Both died within a two year period) I understand this, yet she is healthy and prior to her being in the hospital would have gotten angry and fought to make her life hers, to live in her terms. To shop and do what she could and wanted to do.
