elderly parent confused at night and forgets to use commode

Hi All - my mother who is 87 and with parkinsons is fairly switched on and able to use commode in the daytime but on waking at night gets confused and has urinated in various different locations around her flat. Commode is right next to bed. She has only just moved in so might adjust but anyone got any tips?

Thanks

Costa

Might help ...

There needs to be some sort of LED light stringed or attached somewhere on the commode. So it draws mothers attention to the commode.

Cheers
