Urine Odor- Many thanks for the responses!

Answered
I posted a question a couple of months ago about the overwhelming urine odor in my mother's clothes from the nursing home and I received many helpful suggestions. I wanted to let them know that the odor was coming from a severe UTI that needed treatment with no other symptoms. Will keep them for future use! Many thanks for the responses!

    many of the elders will get frequent uti's...worsening confusion can be one of the first symptoms. some wont drink beverages because of incontinence issues...

      My mother has never been much of a "drinker" (LOL) and almost none with meals. Now that she has very early daily onset of "sundowners" it has become worse. Thank you for your response!

    I'm so glad you got answers from friends on Hometalk.com. I'm also glad the cause of the problem was found. She could have gone much longer untreated with no symptoms, until you started investigating. Best wishes 😇

    I'm new to the community, another tip is Lestoil full-strength in hot water, for a wash cycle, and then. a regular wash with laundry liquid. Hope Mom is feeling better, best of health to her. EJL.
