    My dad who currently lives in Singapore, is 92 yo and suffers from dementia. In recent months, mom who is his sole carer, decided that it is best for him to wear adult diapers as he has lost his ability to “hold it in” until he walks to the bathroom. All has been well until a week ago when he would take off his pj pants and adult diaper, lie back down and then urinate in his sleep. Mom asked him why and he complained it was hot. Mom is feeling unwell due to lack of sleep consistently since he changed his behaviour. Putting him in a nursing home is not an option as mom will not allow it. We’ve tried changing his pjs to much thinner ones as well as thinner blanket. I have suggested to tie one arm to the bed to deter him from ‘stripping’ but mom said its inhumane. I’m really at a loss as to what to do next…. any advice is sincerely appreciated.
