Now he's home, again and has severe water retention on his feet which he's always had and he has been prescribed Lasix which is making his incontinence even worse.
Not anyone can take care of a elderly or ill person.
You should have a heart, really care about people, thats not able to care for themselves.
Any advice or help with this matter would be great!!!!!

He uses a urinal but even w/out the incontinence he misses the urianl and gets urine all over his clothes, himself, feet or slippers, the floor and wheelchair.
He has a nurse, Occupational health, PT, PC care coming in, right now and I get very stressed with all the phone calls/ cross-care, all the suggestions they have.

We can barely pay our bills and while paying these bills, we are short of money to buy groceries.
