Incontinence Products for Adults: Tips for Everyday Use

What Happens Next

After someone has sought treatment for incontinence, found the right incontinence supplies and developed a management strategy for dealing with incontinence it becomes a day to day process to learn how to best deal with incontinence. Even the best plans can go astray but with some helpful tips it can be possible to learn how to utilize incontinence products on a everyday basis in the most effective way possible. Whether you are a caregiver for someone with incontinence or ar
e dealing with your own incontinence here are some helpful tips for everyday use. 

  • Have what you need on hand. One of the worst feelings can be discovering your incontinence supplies have unknowingly run out. You are then faced with an inconvenient run to the store only to find out they may not have what you need! Today, there is no need to have that happen to you. The CareGiver Partnership offer their convenient Never Run Out automatically scheduled delivery service. Watch this short video to learn more. This way you never have to worry about not having what you need to in order to manage your incontinence or for someone in your care. 
  • Know when to change your incontinence product. It can be a process to learn when to change your incontinence product or for someone in your care. Today, many incontinence supplies come with wetness indicators that show when the product needs to be changed. This can be very helpful in knowing when to change. If you decide now is the time to change it is important to have everything you need right by where you are changing. This not only eliminates the embarrassment of not having wipes, or disposal bags nearby but also lowers the risk of falling or accidents if you are helping someone else change their incontinence product.
  • Determine a method for disposal. It is important to have a disposal process already developed on an everyday basis. Not only does swift disposal reduce the chance of hygiene being compromised but it also helps to reduce lingering odors which can occur when an incontinence product has been changed. Disposal bags can help to safely seal up used incontinence supplies and then provide an easy to way to put them in the trash. 
  • Always have a plan. The reality for most people with incontinence is they need to go other places on an everyday basis. If you are leaving your home always have a plan to take with you. Make sure you have plenty of incontinence supplies, know where nearby restrooms are and understand what your specific needs for incontinence management are on an everyday basis. This will help to make sure you can continue to manage your incontinence on day to day basis effectively no matter where you are. 
What’s the best product for me or my loved one?

It can be overwhelming to try and determine exactly what incontinence supplies you or the loved one in your care may need. There are more choices than ever before and they’re changing all the time. This creates even more confusion. There’s pull-on underwear for men, for women, for either; there’s boxers for men, adjustable underwear, briefs (adult diapers), pads for women, liners, guards for men, shields for men, underpads, chair pads, bed pads, undergarments, booster pads, swim pants, washable products, shaped pads, and soon bladder control inserts.

The Caregiver Partnership understands this confusion and have created an easy to use style guide which explains all the style options which can help you determine what incontinence products are right for you or you. You can also speak with one of their knowledgeable ladies and try samples before you buy ($3.49).
