I'm caregiving my mom who is 81. She has severe dementia [stage 6 of 7] AND has an ileostomy. She recently started removing her wafer [barrier, that part that connects her bag] replacing it with a towel. Besides wasting a whole months worth of wafers in 6 days, the feces and acid are starting to eat her skin. I can't seem to find a solution. One nurse told me to put a flexible wrap around the whole bag so she can't get to it. This would require some type of plastic canal piece underneath the bag to allow the bag to drain which is a possibility but maybe uncomfortable for her. The other solution: maybe a weightlifting belt [very wide leather] that has a hole in it and is buckled up in back. That way she could change the bag but not be able to pull the barrier off. Anybody have another idea? Any suggestions?
