of incontinence products.
Many incontinence sufferers, and those who are caring for someone with incontinence, choose to use an adult diaper. This type of incontinence undergarment is referred to as this because they have tabs on the sides of the product that make it more effective for easier removal by caregivers. These tabs can allow for faster and easier changing by the wearer or by their caregiver if the need arise. Many people with incontinence choose to use either Depends or Abena due to the high absorbency found in these brands of adult diapers.
However, it is critical to understand that not all adult diapers are the same. There are a wide variety of brands that offer different options and have vastly different sizing. This make it crucial that if you are shopping for an adult diaper that you have the information that you need in order to find the best one to meet either your incontinence needs or those of your loved one.
The good news is that there are resources that can help you with this selection. Some of these resources include:
Your medical professional-The doctor or other medical professional who is treating the individual can offer guidance and help in choosing the right absorbent product, be it adult diaper or an incontinence pad. The health care professional can also advise if the incontinence will get worse or if this is a temporary situation. This is also an important factor in choosing the right adult diaper.
Keeping a voiding diary-Many caregivers, and those with incontinence, will keep a voiding diary for a few days or even a week to see when the incontinence protection is needed most. This can help the person who is selecting the adult diaper to understand what kind should be used and what absorbency will work best. Caregiverpartnership.com offers a printable voiding diary. This can help you and your doctor get a clear picture of your incontinence, and also your needed absorbency.
Trying out samples-The reality is that there is a large number of adult diapers. This can make it extremely confusing as to which adult diaper should be used. Every person is different, and fit and comfort play a large role in protection. Many consumers spend a great deal of money trying out adult diapers that don’t work for them before finding the right one. The good news is that there is no need to do this. Caregiverpartnership.com offers over 100 products that come in sample packages of 4 for the low cost of only $3.49 shipping and handling. This will allow you to determine which adult diaper is the best for you while eliminating costly spending and frustration.
