Pressure cooker of stress - I am struggling to cope

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
Hi Darren, how's it going? I hope the stairlift people came. Best wishes from a fellow coffee drinker ;)

Hello
Phew still stressing.
The stairlift is now fitted and is a god send.
Trying to deal with the hygeine issue and trying to find a waterproof cover/cushion that is not too high and not too hard but can deal with lets say certain odours.
Urine based incontinence sheet pads do not really deal with odours.
Have you asked your GP surgery "Continence Nurse" for advice?
Hi Darren,
whilst you are waiting for advice from the continence nurse or an OT (I'd give them a race and ask for your caree to be referred to both); you could try a cot mattress protector wrapped around the cushion along with the disposable one you are using. Pet carpet and fabric cleaning/odour spray might help eradicate the smell too.
