Hi, I need some advice because i am not sure how i feel about this.
My son (30’s) lives in a care home for people with profound PD and LD.
He has to wear pads for double incontinence. Recently he was shaved ‘downstairs’ by a carer - he is not able to decide either way and this is the first time ever. He comes home for visits so I was a shocked at first when i changed him - he was bald! I asked the staff and was told its more hygienic. I’m waiting to hear how they actually did it because he has lots of unwanted movements - dystonia and athetoisis with spastic patterns. Plus he doesn’t like the feeling of electric shavers so we wet shave him only on his face.
I am loathe to make a fuss because he seems fine - its just me who feels ‘weirded out’.
