Mattress Protectors and Mattress Pads

According to the National Association for Continence, over 50% of homebound older persons suffer from incontinence. Unfortunately, as a population, older people are especially likely to suffer bladder problems because many of the causes of incontinence, such as nerve damage from strokes or diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, also become more common later in life. Though urinary incontinence can sometimes be cured, most of the time treatments are less than 100% effective, so patients and caregivers must focus on practical management. This is where aids such as mattress protectors and mattress pads can be very useful, both in helping to maintain individual hygiene and in protecting beds and bedding.

Mattress protectors and mattress pads from Adaptiveshops.com are:
• Machine Washable–an important consideration for the caregiver.
• Waterproof–this helps prevent leakage and protects both bedsheets and mattresses.
• Designed with materials that wick away moisture from skin.
• Designed with elasticized skirts or zippers to prevent pads and protectors from curling up.
• Absorbent.
• Durable.

One caregiver stated ” My own father suffered from Alzheimer’s for years and I know that among the tools my mother used to help her manage with the struggle of caring for him were several mattress protectors and mattress pads. She told me her only regret was not having purchased these sooner, as they saved her a lot of work in keeping him clean and comfortable.”
