Lose control...

A few years back, one of my good friends' mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer and has to be sent to the nursing home as my friend and her siblings have to work and can't be at home to take care of their mom. It was a huge blow to the family but they tried to do the best they could.

With this disease, my friend's mom often can't feel herself. There were many occasions where she lose control of her bladder and wet herself. Since my friend's mom is staying full time at the nursing home, the caretaker has requested that my friend's mom to put on protective underwear. That was another blow as it ate in more into their expenses apart from the monthly fees they need to pay the nursing home.
