An earlier post (16/12/15) discusses incontinence pads and pants. But as even the best of these are by no means foolproof, many people also use washable or disposable bedpads which can go between sheets and the bed user. These are often referred to as 'Kylies' (actually a brand name). I used to use washable ones until I found disposables that do a very good job of keeping sheets dry and have 'wings' which help to keep them in place. They are Attends Cover-Dri Plus 80 x 170cm and they come in packs of 30. Prices vary so you need to shop around online. I think they are good value, bearing in mind that you will be spending money every time you wash and dry a washable Kylie. Attends and other firms make various sizes of disposable pads but these are the only ones I've found that stay in place (because of the wings).
