|Selecting the right size|
- Understand that there is a wide range of sizes in the Depends incontinence product line-There is no need to settle for a “one size fits all” incontinence undergarment. This means that small people do not have to feel like they are swimming in their incontinence undergarment while larger individuals can also be comfortable wearing theirs. Depend offers a wide range of sizes from small to extra-large. This means that the person who will be wearing the Depends can find just the right size for them. It cannot be stressed enough that good fit in any incontinence undergarment is crucial. Not only will this make the wearer more comfortable it will give better protection. If someone is wearing an incontinence undergarment that is too small or too large, gaps and chafing could occur and this can then contribute to leakage and accidents.
- Understand that there is a difference between Depends for men and Depends for women-At one time all incontinence undergarments were unisex. Unfortunately, this did not provide the protection that many incontinence sufferers needed. Today, manufacturers of incontinence products realize that each gender has unique needs when it comes to incontinence supplies. Depends addresses these needs by providing Depends for men and Depends for women. Caregivers and wearers of incontinence products should not assume that all incontinence supplies are the same. Taking into the account the gender of the wearer will help to provide both better protection and fit when choosing the right size of Depends.
- Understand that the lifestyle choices of the wearer should be considered when choosing a type of Depends-From Depends diapers, to Depends undergarments there is an incontinence product for every type of person who needs one. From incontinence sufferers who have limited mobility or who are bedridden to incontinence sufferers who want to carry on with their normal activities there is a Depends incontinence product for them. Many users of Depends undergarments will want to be able to use their incontinence product while continuing to wear normal clothes while others may need something different in order to help their caregiver.
