|Maintain your dignity and discretion.|
The problem: The need for incontinence products can be embarrassing and interfere with daily living, so how can you find protection with discretion?
The solution: Choose products that look and feel like real underwear, but provide protection to the wearer, and plan well. Here’s how:
Avoid accidents. One of the best ways to keep your adult diapers hidden is to avoid accidents in the first place. Have a plan of action, including scheduled bathroom breaks that will help minimize the need to change, as well as minimize the number of adult diapers you need to have on hand or carry with you at any given time. Know where bathrooms are located. Estimate how frequently you may need to use the restroom to avoid accident, and plan accordingly.
Keep handy but hidden. No matter where you are, or what you are doing, if you have an accident, you will want to change your diaper quickly. Of course, to be able to do this, you need to have an unsoiled adult diaper handy. Consider where you are the most, whether it is in your home, at work, etc. and look for ways to store your diapers with discretion. Also consider carrying one on you, in a bag, purse, or briefcase. Look for a bag that has a pocket you can discreetly dedicate to holding your incontinence supplies, for easy access, no matter where you are.
Dress carefully. Choose clothes that disguise, or help you wear adult diapers discreetly. Sheer, lightweight, or form fitting clothes can make it difficult to disguise even the most discrete and low profile products.
Choose the right size. One size does not fit all, and sizes vary across brands. If you want to hide your adult diapers, you have to make sure they fit properly so that you can wear them under clothing, but not have to adjust them, or deal with leaks. The CareGiver Partnership offers 500 items, 10 times more than even the big stores with 100 different samples. Their knowledgeable product specialists can help you find the best size and products. These nice ladies will help you find the perfect fit, or help you order the samples that might best service your needs. To contact a product specialist call 800-985-1353 M-F 9-4 Central.
Choose the right kind of diaper. Not all adult diapers are designed for the same purpose. For example, nighttime diapers are designed for extra absorbency and protection, with less focus on a slim profile or discrete look. If you want to hide your adult diapers under clothing, consider products such as Depend Silhouette Underwear for Women and Depend Real Fit for Men. These are designed to look, fit, and feel like traditional underwear, allowing men and women to go about their normal activities without the risk of embarrassment at wearing adult diapers, but with all the protection that they afford.
Dispose properly. Disposal is important. If you do not have a discreet disposal method, you will quickly be found out. Look for disposal sacks that allow you to seal up soiled diapers, and place them in garbage bins. Many offer odor protection as well.
