There is something that doctors often give to their patients to submit a fecal sample for testing as part of the colon cancer screening process. It checks for occult blood in the stool. It's called the Hemoccult Fecal Occult Blood Test. The patient puts small bits of stool samples on little cards in the privacy of their home. Then a special solution is applied in the lab or doctor's office to see if there is blood. It might be possible that your doctor would offer to prescribe the components of the test for home usage.
The main draw back is that if there is blood in the stool, then the test area on the card turns BLUE - something you could not see. However, you could ask a family member to read the sample.
