5 Favorite Products for night time incontinence

As a growing number of Americans are living to a ripe old age, nighttime incontinence has become more commonplace. Often it's simply age-related. It can also be caused by a range of medical conditions. Fortunately, there are a number of excellent products people can use to make being incontinent at night less of a problem for sufferers and caregivers.

Absorbent Undergarments 

One of the simplest ways to help people who suffer from incontinence at night stay dry and protect their sensitive skin is to use absorbent undergarments. Disposable adult undergarments come in a variety of styles and thicknesses. Some are designed specifically for men or women. They enable incontinent people to stay dry at night even if they've had an 'accident'.

Waterproof Sheets

Waking up with urine soaked sheets can be a major hassle. It usually forces people to wash lots of them every week. Waterproof sheets keep moisture from penetrating the mattress and can be wiped clean and reused when soiled saving time, money, and energy.

Vinyl Mattress Covers

This product is excellent for protecting mattresses. It also eliminates the need for daily drying and clean the beds used by people with nighttime incontinence. They fit snugly over the mattress, are easy to use, and cleaning them is a breeze.

Bed pads

Bed pads also make it easier to keep the beds of incontinent people clean and dry. They provide an absorbent barrier which protects the mattress from moisture and can prolong its life. Plus they come in washable and disposable styles. In essence, they are flat, absorbent incontinence pads which are placed at waist height on the bed.

Wipes

Wipes can play a crucial role in keeping people suffering from incontinence clean and protecting their skin. Wipes are excellent for removing fecal matter and urine and protecting and improving the skin of incontinence suffers. They're easy to use, disposable, and inexpensive. Some brands of wipes are infused with creams or ointments which can sooth rashes and other minor skin conditions caused by incontinence and provide a barrier which prevents bodily wastes from damaging the skin.
