My grandfather is 89 and lives alone suffering with incontinence he’s currently wearing some pads which aren’t working, leaving his bed and chair soaked on a regular basis. He’s not sure about wearing pull up or nappy style product but I’d like to get something for him to give a go as he can’t keep living like he is. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a good product to try? Maybe some ideas on how I can protect the mattress as well as the regular bed pads aren’t enough? I hate seeing him like this!
Yes, he can still toilet as normal and does not need to change them after every toilet visit. He does, however, need to change his pants whenever they start to feel full. It might be ideal for you to remind him frequently throughout the day to check whether they need changing until he becomes used to changing them.
If he is fairly independent and can get around the home, he should be okay with changing these. I would give these a go, and if he struggles with putting on and removing these you could try an all in one product.
Let me know how he gets on with these, and if you would like any specific product recommendations.
