I would like some input on incontinence care.  What are the best products for the patient and for the bed?  I am just getting into this with my DH and nothing seems too great. Thanks

I place good quality chux under my mother and the bed, and another one between her brief and her gown. I have found these to be the best briefs- Tranquility Overnight.

Hi SuzyGail,

There was a long discussion about products a short time ago.  Actually, scroll down the topics and it should still be on the first page.  It's called 'Incontinence (18)'.

Best of luck!

Thanks for the suggestions.  I'll try to see if that works for me.

1.  6-sided waterproof mattress cover from Amazon.

2.  Washable incontinence pads approx 36x48.  Also from Amazon.  Put them under the fitted sheet or on top, depending how much your husband moves around during the night.

3.  The best pull-up style incontinence underwear that I ever found for men was Abena Abri-flex.  Available only on the internet in my area.  Expensive, but worth it.  Capacity is twice what Depends holds.  I purchased from various sources depending who was offering discounts.
