As you get older, incontinence may be something that you have to deal with. Thankfully, there are several products that help seniors deal with incontinence. Here are 7 of the best high quality incontinence products.
1. Sheet Protector
A sheet protector is made of cotton and polyester and is an absorbent pad that goes on top of the bed sheets. It keeps the sheets dry, even if the elderly individual suffers from incontinence in the night. This useful product can keep you from having to wash loads of sheets every night.
2. Adult Diapers
Another option to help with incontinence during the day are adult diapers. These diapers come in all size, styles, and types. Adult diapers make allow seniors to get the size and level of absorbency that they need. Plus, they are very discreet. Seniors can go out in public or remain at home and be comfortable and dry.
3. Overnight Underwear
Overnight underwear are more absorbent than regular daytime diapers. Because they hold more liquid, they are great for nighttime use. Most elderly people don't want to get up in the night multiple times to change a diaper or accidentally leak.
4. Disposable Bed Pads
Disposable bed pads are a good option for seniors who don't want to wash a reusable bed pad. They fit securely over a mattress or they just cover the area where a senior sleeps. A new bed pad can simply be put on each night and then thrown away in the morning. Easy!
5. Mattress Protector
If a senior doesn't like feeling something on top of their sheets when they sleep, then they can go with a mattress protector instead. This is an absorbent, fitted bed pad that goes underneath the regular sheet and covers the entire mattress. Even if the sheets get wet, the mattress will not.
6. Penile Clamp
This clamp can only be used by males. A penile clamp can works by compressing a male's urethra to stop any kind of leakage. This clamp can be used at essentially any time and is reusable, making this a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution.
7. Kegel Exercise Weight
We haven't forgotten our senior ladies! A kegel exercise weight can help elderly women to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles. This can help stop some of the leakage that they experience from weak pelvic floor muscles.
