Care recipient (cr) may embarrass self or others by passing gas in public

Try: #rule out any medical conditions that are contributing to the problem #accompany the cr on a short walk outdoors or direct the cr to a private area immediately after meals if the cr is particularly gassy after eating #encourage the cr to say excuse me if gas is passed in public #consider a diet aimed at reducing gas this would mean eliminating broccoli cauliflower and beans replacing dairy products with lactose-free versions and cooking vegetables rather than serving them raw #if the cr is able to exercise design a low-impact exercise routine the cr can do in private that involves stretching and bending over from the waist this may encourage the passing of gas in private so that less is eliminated in public #consider an over-the-counter anti-gas tablet to be taken before meals if the problem persists
