What causes nosebleeds and wetting of pants in elderly patients?

Being a Private Home Health provider-have listened to my Clients concerns about her 61 year old Son that resides with her......having recurring bloody noses, today I noticed in his Bathroom that not only does he not direct his flow it has become pink ....on the seat....a month ago convinced him to see a Doctor about his care....He is 6 2 tall and the girth around his frame prevents him from putting on socks/shoes and rips out the seat of pants frequently, comes home and has urinated his pants often. Have spoke to Clients POA, Daughter with regard to such and there is not compassion or concern as to the situation.....his health problem is effecting his Mom/Client that the intervention is necessary.
