You are a woman or are caring for a woman who due to physical condition is bedridden. You’ve noticed recently that you have light uncontrolled bladder leaks a few times a day. You could be a caregiver where, in some situations, she may need your assistance in changing her incontinence product. Urine loss is sometimes a problem that you don’t want to talk about or admit. Maybe you have thought about sanitary pads to solve the problem. Unfortunately, sanitary pads are not a good choice for bladder weakness. There are products we can help you with and we offer samples of absorbing products that will fit any of your needs. If you do not know where to start, here is some practical advice:
Visit a doctor. It is important to know that by putting if off you risk worsening the condition. Don’t postpone the visit.
Pay special attention to personal hygiene and care of the skin, of course those areas exposed to incontinence, but also your heels and elbows. It is easy to get bedsores or chafes from being bedbound.
Wear clothing that makes it easy to change regularly, especially easy to change the absorbent incontinence products you use.
Choose absorbent products created for women who value convenience and comfort. These products offer discretion and odor control, even with moderate incontinence.
We have outlined a couple of products below that you may consider. If you don’t feel you ready for briefs, bladder control pads may fit your needs nicely.
Please give us a call if you would like additional assistance, we are always here for you.
