Hi Myrtle, you are quite right, S is continent. Just sometimes when he wees the urine somehow gets through the tiny gap between the toilet seat and the bowl and drips onto the floor. Summer hope that could well do it, Place the Basic Elevated Toilet Seat on top of the toilet making sure that the fla...
Hi everyone, glad we're not the only ones with this problem Lazydaisy, (I mean that in the nicest possible way!)

<t>This is driving me crazy!!<br/> <br/> S can't help it but when he sits to wee (he always has) urine often goes between the seat and the toilet basin and runs down the outside of the toilet basin and onto the floor.

Have a word with Sarah too, and check that it doesn't bother her that you no longer join...

Hi D3lly and welcome, I don't have a lot of experience re mental health, only what I know from what other carers tell me. Have you looked on the MIND website? http://www.mind.org.uk/help/information_and_advice As Bertie says, you are a carer. A lot of people on here care for folk who deny that they ...
<t>Hi Ronnie and welcome,<br/> <br/> have you had an OT assessment? They will come out and see what aids and adaptions would make life easier for you. You could also have an assessment for you daughter to see what would make caring for her easier. When my hip was really bad I had an extra stair rail...
Hi Georgie,

yes life with ASD in the family can make things interesting Image

I care for S, he is 20 and has classic autism. It seems to be one battle after another, advocating for his needs to be met.
