Nighttime incontinence can be a frustrating and embarrassing experience, but there are a few ways you can help your loved one through these hard times.
Talk to them
As is the case with any potentially embarrassing situation, it’s important to be there for loves ones. There is also the possibility of them seeing a social worker or other therapist that they could feel comfortable with. If a group setting makes them uncomfortable, you may be their only outlet.
Go with them to support groups
There are online forums and in-person support groups for people dealing with incontinence. Many of these groups are anonymous as well to make them feel even more comfortable.
Wearever’s quilted incontinence pad is great not only for bedtime but throughout the day as well. This quilted top cloth looks like any other blanket in your living room but has a waterproof backing that will protect from wetness, and is designed to be washed at least 200 times.
There are also special mattress pads with wings, which add softness and comfort, and the fabric wings are used to keep the mattress pad in place throughout the night. The best part is that they can be used over and over again and can hold up to 60 ounces of liquid.
Don’t let your loved ones feel alone; help them through these difficult situations with their dignity intact.
