Their bed should be as dry as possible and it would be impractical to change sheets every now and then.

    i am used to living with old people such as mom and my aunt. lucky for me they are fit and very healthy at their age. i do my best to take care of them by making sure they are comfortable and i avoid doing things that will make them worry. am not sure though if they will like sleeping in special mattresses as they prefer old stuff.
