I need mattress underpads for incontinence for an adult. Does anyone have any tips? Greatly appreciated. I'm seeking some that are large in size, covering most of the bed, not just a small area. disposable or washable, less invasive, as comfortable as possible. I am seeking brand names, places for purchase, quality, value etc....the few I've seen are very small in appearance and I've tried several places that don't carry many if any. Thanks much.

Amazon has a nice selection. Here's one that's highly-rated, washable, inexpensive and comes in various sizes (up to 44" x 52").

The only "brand name" item I have personally seen is called Chucks - those blue pads you sometimes see at the hospitals but no so much any more. They were never very big, or absorbent, and bunched up easily underneath the patient. My Dad was in an assisted living facility for a few months before he passed and they had that sort of padding on the beds there. If I were you - I would talk to the patient's doctor and advise them what you are in need of - let them write you a prescription for it and Medicare will usually handle all if not most of the cost. It would be considered durable equipment - anything that you need for your loved one - canes, wheelchairs, beds, etc can be obtained that way at a reasonable cost. If they are at a home ask the staff there where is the best place to purchase what you are looking for - at a reasonable cost. They may be able to order them for you at their cost - or you could also check online at Walgreens as they do have quite a selection of incontinence items online. There are some that are bed sized and a lot of them are about 3x3. I would also suggest some specialized ointment or powder to keep the sensitive skin from getting rubbed or blistered from the friction of the bedding on tender skin. Good luck.

Thanks for that post TFF - turns out I'm looking for something similar that my mom can use for her husband, he'll be released tomorrow (maybe) from a rehab place after being in in the hospital for 8 1/2 weeks. He's gotten bed sores - time being, she's going to set up the twin bed in the guest room for him (easier to get in and out). I'm going to check into this.

Find a waterproof mattress cover. My doggy would be found peeing on our bed in the old house. Get some spares, while you're at it. That way you have a good rotation.

I'd go this route too.

My dad, when he was suffering from cancer, also had this problem. We must have at least a dozen of these waterproof pads. It's on every bed we own. It saves the hassles of having to clean a mattress and it keeps it new looking. Urine is a tough odor to rid yourself of. I never tried it on human urine but I use the enzymes for dogs when he makes an accident in the house. It minimizes repeat offenses for dogs in the same location, at least.
