You are a woman or are caring for a woman who due to physical condition is bedridden. Recently you have noticed that your problem with urine loss has gotten worse. You may be experiencing bladder leakage, several times during the day or night. Uncontrolled bladder leakage several times a day may indicate a moderate degree of incontinence. Perhaps you are worried about the unpleasant smell of urine and find that you are avoiding other people’s company and preferring not to socialize with friends. If you are the caregiver of a woman who is experiencing increased incontinence incidents, she may need your assistance in changing her incontinence products much more often now. What you are experiencing is common with women and their families. It is important not to feel isolated. 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 product below that should work nicely for you. It is called a brief. We do not suggest protective underwear because of your mobility, briefs will make it easier for you or your caregiver to change because they have tape tabs that draw the brief tight.
