Practical Tips to Manage Dad's Incontinence

Judie Rappaport
November 27, 2014

Dear Judie,

 

Your advice to the daughter whose father showed signs of incontinence was excellent as far as it went, but for cases where incontinence cannot be completely controlled I have two additional suggestions to reduce urine stains on the front of his pants. If dad does his own laundry, it might not be too embarrassing to offer him a bottle of pre-wash spray to use. For prevention, there is a smaller sized male pad (for those who do not need a diaper) or old undershirts can be cut into squares and folded or stitched into a size that is just large enough to absorb any mild leakage. These only work well with jock-type shorts.
