Re: newbie

I'm so sorry you are going through all this. My husband had pull-ups and when he had a bowel movement it was pretty messy. I had baby wipes to clean him and then I put him on a shower chair or bench and had a shower extension and then washed him really well with soap and water. It was difficult when he couldn't walk and he was in a wheelchair but if you can get help or do it yourself then they will be clean and not have anything on their body that could make them have rashes, etc. I wish you the best. It is hard to take care of a loved one at home. Can anyone help you?
