Bladder Issues

Bladder Issues

Hi, I’m looking for some advice or guidance in relation to my dad. My dad has EOPD, he’s 15 years with his diagnosis this year. My dad is in full time care for almost 3 years as he became a high risk for falls at home. In recent years, dad’s bladder issues have gotten worse, in particular for the past year, the number of UTIs he has been contracting have been becoming more common and it’s taking on average 2 courses of antibiotics to clear the infection. My concern now is when he has an UTI, he is having more falls, especially at night, while rushing to the bathroom. My dad’s Urologise doesn’t want to put in a long term catheter as he is high risk for infection, but with the frequency increasing and him having more falls, would the catheter not be more comfortable for him?

Has anybody else experienced a similar issue or concern?
