- Loved one DX
My mother has been almost completely bedridden the past few months, but last weekend she fell and injured both feet and is now completely immobile. We're waiting on a Hoyer lift so she can get from bed to her potty chair. However, while we are waiting things have become very difficult. We tried a bed pan, but she couldn't easily get to it because her bed is flat. So we've started putting her in Depends. Problem is, she has been going a lot. We want to change them as soon as she uses them, but we all work full time jobs and can't be there at all times. Has anyone experienced anything that might work besides diapers? I hate the idea of her sitting an hour or two until someone gets there to change them. Right now Medicare only pays for home health one hour per day, or else we would have someone with her more. I'd appreciate any thoughts if you've been through this?
