Mom is now (unhappily) ensconced in her new community - she was transferred from rehab Mon evening. I am trying to figure out if "pull ups" are the same as incontinence underwear? Are Depends pull ups? Or are those Always brand "lady underwear" the same as adult pull ups?
I knew from the mountains of stinky laundry and evidence on some chairs at my mother's home that she was having incontinence issues. The hospital and rehab put her in "pull ups." She also developed C.diff somewhere along the line, which was supposed to have resolved before she was discharged from rehab but she is having diarrhea again. So I need to purchase the correct item but the facility uses some generic products they buy in bulk and all the nurse told me was to get some adult pull ups. (I don't want to pay $79/mo for the community to provide them until I see if that is cost-effective.)
Mom is not totally incontinent - she much prefers the toilet if she gets help to get her to it in time, so she doesn't need a super absorbent item.
Can anyone recommend a brand that is comfortable, affordable and good for medium urine incontinence but will also catch any C. diff issues? Mom is 5'3 and 120 pounds now, so pretty small. Thanks!
