i agree with Red i made sure mom always had cranberry juice and i also had to put bells up in case she wandered...i hv lost both parents and recently i totally lost my own memory do to seizure and other complications...yes it is frustrating for caregivers but i have felt the other end of the spectrum n i was scared felt so alone n really didnt want to be a burden on my daughter..i am now deaf as well...i was a geriatric nurse for many many years so you can see why this was difficult for me..they cannot help much of what goes on but i am sure you are tryng your best it is not easy but we are here for support n input ..lyn
ALSO It ripped my daughters heart out to see me as i was i have become much stronger remember more but still have bad days....lyn..perhaps when she is on toilet run the tap n see if that may jog her to piddle..idk just trying to suggesst different ideas....
