How Seniors Can Stop Bed Wetting

how seniors can stop bed wetting

Bed wetting is an involuntary activity most seniors do when they are asleep. This phenomenon is also called “nocturnal enuresis”. Health conditions and medications can affect your seniors loved one’s urinating patterns. But it’s never too late to stop complaining about dealing with a wet bed every morning. You can still help your parent or grandparent fix this issue. Here are some of the ways you can let them stop wetting their beds.

Drink enough fluids and urinate before going to bed.

Everyone is told to drink at least eight glasses of water in a day. It is okay to drink fluids to keep yourself hydrated. But it is wrong to keep the fluids in your bladder since it might lead to bigger health conditions. It is wise to avoid drinking caffeinated, sweetened, or alcoholic beverages as this may also alter your urinating patterns, including the color and volume of your urine. It is important to record how many glasses of water your loved one has consumed daily.

Before going to bed, lead your senior loved one to the comfort room and let him urinate first. This way, your loved one has released all the fluids he might release while sleeping. It is better to release the fluids first than have it coming unexpectedly. Sometimes, bed wetting might be triggered by nightmares or eerie dreams. Make it a point to kiss your senior loved one’s head and tuck him with the sheets before going to sleep.

Schedule it.

Sleep beside your senior loved one at night. You should set up an alarm at the hour when your loved one usually feels like peeing. But before you can determine which hour is the most appropriate, observe your loved one’s sleeping patterns first. You can have your loved one wake you up whenever he feels like urinating.

See the doctor for accurate treatment of bladder problems.

Sometimes, urinating unexpectedly as one sleeps is connected to certain problems in the urinary tract or bladder. Medications can also affect your loved one’s urinating patterns. You can have your loved one’s urine examined in the laboratory before going to the doctor for a consultation. Your doctor can make accurate diagnosis if your urine is already examined.
