Larger Diapers, Less Cleaning

Adult diapers are a delicate subject, but bear with me. I can save you some unnecessary clean up. I noticed that when we were using the exact size diaper recommended for seniors who are very incontinent, urine and/or the poop often leaked out, soiling the bedsheets and clothes. So we made an experiment of using a large diaper on all our small or medium sized residents (or one size bigger than their normal size). Because the diaper is larger, it overlaps the whole bottom of the person, preventing urine and/or poop spillage. The larger diapers do cost a bit more, but they are well worth it.
