Have Incontinence - Will Travel

Cancelled flights are a common occurrence today - be prepared
If you have recently been diagnosed with incontinence you may feel that vacations and traveling are a thing of the past. The good news is that with some planning and creativity you can still venture as far away from home as you would like and still effectively manage your incontinence. However, there are a few steps that you should take before you head off to your next destination.

One of the first things that you should do is to make sure that you have the right incontinence products to meet your needs. You need to take the time to check out the wide variety of incontinence supplies that include: incontinence pads, incontinence underwear, and even adult diapers if you need them. This way you can have the right incontinence supplies on hand that will help you to manage your incontinence even when you are far from home. Keep in mind that the shopping for adult incontinence products doesn’t have to be difficult since most urinary incontinence products can be found online. 

Now that you are prepared to head out to wherever you want, here are some other tips that will help you effectively manage your incontinence while you travel.
  • Sit near the restroom-One of the biggest delays that you want to avoid is having to find the restroom when you need it. It is important to get wherever you are going early (plane, train, venue, restaurant etc.) and scope out where the restrooms are. Then you need to make sure that you are sitting as close to the restrooms as possible. This will help you to have access to the restroom as quickly as you need to. Keep in mind that you can often check out on the internet where the restrooms are at any particular destination.
  • Avoid public transportation-While this is not always possible if you can avoid traveling in public transportation it can relieve much of the stress of dealing with your incontinence. When you have your own means of transportation then you will be able to stop for breaks whenever you need to and don’t have to worry about dealing with the restrooms in public transportation which are often not conducive to managing incontinence. Best of all you won’t have the stress of passengers wondering why you are headed to the restrooms quite so often.
  • Control your diet-If you will be traveling for long distances in public transportation then it becomes even more important to control what you eat and drink. You may want to temporarily reduce how much you are drinking so you won’t have to urinate as much. In addition, you should avoid anything with caffeine, alcohol and lots of salt or spice since these can all be bladder irritants. However, it should be stressed that once you reach your travel destination you should begin hydrating as you normally would.
  • Don’t forget cleaning supplies-Most people remember to bring the incontinence products that they use and then forget their cleaning supplies. You want to make sure that you have plenty of the cleaning supplies that you normally use for cleaning up after accidents and leakage.
