This dont sound so nice and comfy. But I can understand that some times have to wait because the home care services in many cases are so overstretched. But I hope that the investigation will be into something positive so that this does not have to happen again. I can imagine that the disabled were not so very happy about this situation. Can not be so on nice to have to wait so long for a diaper change if you really need won right now.

  1. No, it doesn’t sound very comfortable. I don’t mind waiting at least 1/2 hr for a diaper change. But 1 hr? Particularly after you’ve pooped in your diaper? That doesn’t sound very comfortable, not to mention unhealthy.

  2. You could move to my area I could help you ok share rent we could help each other see I wear them depends ok
