Incontinence is a symptom of the body’s inability to control excretion of the body’s wastes. More common in women, urinary incontinence is caused by weak bladder muscles and nerve damage, especially during pregnancy, after childbirth, during onset of menopause, and after surgery. For seniors, incontinence may be associated with Parkinson’s disease, dementia, strokes, multiple sclerosis, or physical injuries. One of the major problems with urinary incontinence occurs at night when the dampness wakes up your elderly loved one and makes it uncomfortable for him or her to go back to sleep. To help your loved one get a better night’s sleep, try these suggested products:
- Booster pads
- Heavy-duty, extra-long liner pads for pull-ups
- Incontinent underwear with extended overnight super absorbency
- Presto absorbent products
- Tranquility Premium Pull-ups
If your elderly loved one feels more comfortable using the restroom rather than going in his pull-ups, an overnight caregiver from A-1 Home Care can assist him and make sure that he doesn’t fall on his way to the bathroom. In addition to vigilant overnight care, A-1 Home Care also provides assistance with meal preparation, laundry, light housekeeping, companion care and more.
