Your dad needs to get moving…. Walking, kegels, and stairs. Post the information above the toilet…. So he sees it every time he goes to the bathroom.
Also ~ print out the kegel information…. He needs to find something that works for him.

**Urinary continence: The return of urinary control:
I posted a sign in the bathroom…
**Phase One is when you can remain dry when lying down.
**Phase Two is when you’re dry when you’re walking around.
**If you can walk to the bathroom and not urinate until you get there, that’s a GREAT SIGN!!!… it means that the sphincter is intact.
**Phase Three, you are dry when you stand up (using muscles that put pressure on the sphincter) after sitting.
**Remember, the recovery of urinary control is a slow process.
The most important thing you can do during this time is not to get discouraged.
