Just another little chore for the caretaker!
But certainly an important one. Not knowing how often (or seldom) mom's BMs were happening was difficult due to her inability to remember. A real CRS diagnosis (LOL).
Resolution: unhook the chain in the toilet tank.
Now I go in after her to flush "the broken toilet". No longer have to wonder what's happening.

We keep track of Dad's BMs in order to avoid an accident. He usually goes 30 minutes after eating. We don't leave the house until he goes. Also, if we eat out, we make sure there's a restroom nearby.
Also, not to be too graphic, but you can tell a lot about a person's health by looking at the color/consistancy.
Peace

I have been noticing my mother's frequenting of the restroom and I (unfortunately) hear her going number two at what seems like everytime. I was getting concerned- what is the importance of monitering BMs(by the way, great idea!)? Is the digestive tract effected with ALZ?
