Daughter and senior mother outside If you’re a caregiver for a family member or friend, then you usually know how well a product works pretty quickly. You can tell which ones clearly don’t work usually the morning after your loved one uses that product.  Do you see the wet spots on the sheets? Do you feel wet pajamas?

If you are a caregiver for someone who has dementia while also managing incontinence, you know how difficult it is to keep that person dry, comfortable and happy 24/7. 

We’ve selected the top incontinence products that you should consider next time you shop for your loved one with dementia. These products have been recommended by families for their senior family members with dementia. 

Recommended Incontinence Products for Dementia Patients: Underwear

NorthShore™ FlexSupreme™ Underwear-One of the most absorbent underwear we carry on the site that has the most flexible waistband. This underwear is available in larger sizes that go up to 2XL and has the capacity to hold numerous voids overnight. 

NorthShore™ GoSupreme™ Underwear- Another absorbent pull-on style underwear that offers smaller leg holes for individuals with thin legs. The European size provides a secure fit around the thigh and leg openings while offering full coverage in the front and back.

“I bought items for my mom who is 93 and has dementia. I read the review on the pull ups (GoSupreme™ Pull-Ons) and due to Mom sleeping so much at night we were having issues with her wetting the bed at night as the store bought adult diapers were not working throughout the night. I read the description on the pull ups offered and have been so pleased, they have worked throughout the night. They are easy to use as there is not a front or a back and no more bed wetting.”

Useful Incontinence Products for Seniors: Liners

NorthShore Heavy Duty Liners- These are extra-long and extra absorbent pads that can be used in regular underwear. When pull-on underwear or tab-style briefs may not be an option your loved one, you can use liners known as large shaped pads. The largest liner in the 2XL size holds up to 32 ounces. Please be sure to call for sizing assistance, these liners are fairly long and are not made for all body types.
