My dad goes to bed at 8pm ..up at 11:00 wet, up again at 2:00am wet and then up at 7am completely soaked ...clothes and bedding! We use two depends and two night time insert pads and he wets through all! We tried the condom catheter but he takes it off and then everything is wet! When he is up at night he never remembers anything and doesn't know whats going on when we are changing him. He gets up on his own to tell us he is cold...but really he is just wet!

Good grief how much fluid does he intake? Can you measure his fluid intake and put a limit on it? If he is on diuretics, can you limit them to AM and Noon?

So sorry that you all are going through this.. My husband did this too no matter what I tried. It was just me to take care of him so after three years of little sleep, I placed him in memory care. It took two years before I was able to sleep again. Would you be able to hire someone to sit with him and take care of the changing so you could sleep?
