How to Deal With Incontinence in Elderly

on 08/17/2012

Incontinence is one of the most common problems or disorders that senior people experience and encounter, though this is not the most-talked about problem, but many suffer from this. Incontinence in elderly men is caused by the enlargement of their prostate gland, stroke, diabetes and others; while in elderly women, several factors cause incontinence like obesity, urinary tract infection, stroke, diabetes and others. When the elderly experiences incontinence, it may be very difficult for them to go on with their daily living activities. It may be a hassle for some especially if they are outside their homes like when they are in a doctor’s appointment or for medical check-up. It can really be a hindrance. For family members who are caring for the elderly, dealing with incontinence could also mean extra work or chore. For the senior, the embarrassment brought about by accidentally peeing can be very emotionally devastating. It is also not the most talked about problem so buying incontinence supplies maybe an awkward matter. But thanks to technology, buying these supplies online can now be done. One can purchase adult diapers at where they offer a wide range of incontinence supplies and delivered right at their doorstep.

The use of adult diapers has greatly reduced and lessened the effects of incontinence. For the senior, embarrassment can now be avoided and they are protected from their accidental peeing. Adult diapers have also evolved as they come in different sizes, hard-to-detect, thin and have become more comfortable underwear and a great solution to the dilemma of incontinence.

    My grandmother suffered from incontinence as well, it’s pretty much common to their age. Good thing we can handle this now with adult diapers.

    Its a sad fact but we all get there in the end. I hope by that time I can afford a personal nurse in case my kids refused to look after me. And bulk diapers would be a great savings.

    you know what reminds of this this product? an argument about the word adult diaper. A lady who works in a geriatric facility was insulted by that word and she was furious about people who call this product as “adult diaper” because according to her, you wont see that words labeled in any of protecting pants out there. She even said that that is disrespectful to all elderly because they don’t wear diaper, instead they wear protective pants.
