To make the nights comfortable

After the father reached the age if 60, he is very sickly.  Though he is not in and out of the hospital, which is good but sometimes his illness gives him too much pain.  He cannot move and walk normally because his feet and knee are swelling because of arthritis.  We are not expecting that the father will be in this worse situation.  Every time her feels the call of nature, the brother and I will carry him to go to the bathroom. We felt pity for him because he is in pain every time we carry him.  If only we  have adult chamber pot and diaper to use.  After what had happened, the family decided to buy those things for when the father will get sick again, we have chamber pot and diaper to use.  We do not need to carry him to the bathroom anymore. Two weeks of carrying him in the bathroom is very difficult especially that the father weight of the father is a bit heavy. 

What had happened gives us the idea to be ready always.  The father is not getting any younger and attacked by his sickness from time to time.  We thought of buying the things like diaper that father will need if he gets sick at MoliCare products at ParentGiving. The most important to have so that we do not have to carry him to the bathroom if he wants to pee and defecate. Wearing diaper at night will make the father sleep comfortably.  It is not easy when our aged parents and elderly get sick especially if we do not know what to do.  Just like what had happened to us when the father gets really sick first time.  We learned from that experienced though, but I guess it is not enough.  We have to learn many things in taking care of our aged parents and elderly.  I am glad that has various articles which we could read to learn and to get an idea of what we are going to do next time.
