    Your bibs for your Dad are darling. Great idea and it has to brighten the day for anyone who sees him. Blessings to you and your Mother.
    This too shall pass.

    Great idea on bib. ,I also know how hard it is taking care of the elderly. But they took care of us and now it's our turn to step to the plate. Inner strenght is why we are able to do this for our parents and LOVE. hugs sent to you

    I love the bibs you made for you father!! When I worked in nursing home, we only had blue terry cloth "clothing protectors". I am amazed that your Dad can't have rails on his bed!!! Falling to the floor is so dangerous for elderly patients.

    Love you eye-catching clothing protectors for your Dad and I'm glad it gives your Mom a little lift too. She is wise to take them home to wash, the facilities there are very hard on fabrics too and yes, some wander. DMIL lived with us for 7 years with Alz. I had chef's aprons that I used as "crumb catchers". The longer length was great and I could bleach when needed.

Ask for a lower bed, my mom got a lower bed and they also put down pads on the floor like gym mats.
    I had wondered why they didn't allow bed rails since it seems like a good safety device. But, I hadn't thought about the other dangers. Thanks for explaining.

    I love the term clothing protectors. I think I will make some for myself. Living alone, I frequently eat in my recliner while reading or watching tv and usually just put a kitchen towel over me. These would also be functional and pretty!

    "Clothing Protector" does sound nicer than "Bib"

    I also need them. Try as I might - I usually end up with a splotch on my front.

    Nice clothing protectors. I would have loved some of them for my residents when I worked in a long term nursing facility. For the comments on side rails, they are considered a restraint and often require Dr's order and can be dangerous with a confused resident. Low beds and floor pads work well and if you have problem getting them talk to their Dr and get ordr for them.
    Thankful to still be here.Someone upstairs must still have a plan for me.
