Adult Incontinence Care - You Are Not Alone

Loss of bladder control, or urinary incontinence, is a very common condition. Up to 35% of people over age 60 are estimated to be incontinent and 1 in 3 women over 60 suffer from bladder control problems.

There are five types of incontinence. Stress incontinence: leakage of urine due to pressure on the bladder when laughing, coughing, exercising, or lifting heavy objects.  Urge incontinence: a strong sudden "urge" to urinate where one cannot reach the bathroom in time. Overflow incontinence: the bladder fills beyond capacity & urine spills or the feeling of never being able to empty the bladder. Reflex incontinence: involuntary urination without any sensation of a full bladder. Functional incontinence: result of surgery, restricted mobility, medications, or mental disorders.

When evaluating incontinence products, consider these factors:

  • Liquid Absorption & Capacity:  Look for products with maximum absorbency to help avoid skin irritation & pressure sores.
  • Cost-effectiveness: A higher performance product lasts longer between changes.
  • Leakage protection: Product absorbency enables one to lead a confident life instead of coping with withdrawal, anxiety, embarrassment & social isolation.
