How often should depends be changed

LIKE (40)

I'm am caring for my elderly mother who wears depends, but she thinks she only has to change them every 3 or 4 days. She doesn't soil them, she wears them just in case of an accident. Would she get an infection from not changing them often? How can I get her to change. Does anyone else have this problem?
