In persons with mild to moderate impairment from Alzheimer's disease, they're usually not truly incontinent. Usually they have a sense they need to get to the bathroom but they can't find it. Another reason why they might have accidents is their clothing's too complicated for them to undo. So it's important both to direct somebody to the bathroom promptly and on a routine schedule every two hours and simplify their clothing if you can. When they truly become incontinent, it's important to put protective clothing on them, make sure that you have protection on your mattresses and on your upholstery, and to clean the person routinely and carefully every two hours because any amount of urine or feces on the skin can cause serious infections.
