How can we help my father, who has Alzheimer's remember to pull his depends down when using the bathroom?
My dad has Alzheimer's and wears depends. The problem is that when he goes to the bathroom he does not pull his depends down. We don't know why. He even forgets to take them off when he showers. Do you have some advice or is there a product out there that may help?
If your father goes to the bathroom on his own does he need Depends? Have you tried pinning them to his pants so they will go down when he pulls his pants down? Other than that, someone will have to make sure they go to the bathroom with him. Put a bell on the door so that you are aware when he enters the bathroom.
