Many people throughout the Burlington and Oakville areas suffer from incontinence of varying types and severity. In fact, according to the Canadian Incontinence Foundation, there are 3.3 million Canadians who have some form of incontinence. And it can affect both men and women of all ages. And because incontinence affects different people in different ways, their needs for incontinence supplies will also vary.
At Brant Arts, we offer a variety of supplies ranging from leak-proof diapers and overnight diapers for adults to bed pads, etc. And although this can be a personal and often embarrassing issue for many, our professional pharmacy staff is always on hand to answer your questions and guide you to the right products.
What are incontinence supplies?
Incontinence supplies help you manage urinary or bowel incontinence and protect clothing, bedding and furniture. These products help improve the quality of life for people living with incontinence as they help prevent accidents and help keep the skin dry and comfortable. Incontinence supplies can include:
- Leak-proof diapers for adults
- Overnight diapers for adults
- Protective underwear
- Disposable and reusable underpads
- Odour eliminators
- Wipes and washcloths
- Bed pads
- Male and female urinals and bed pans
How incontinence supplies can improve your life
Many people are reluctant to purchase incontinence supplies because they are embarrassed or their problem “isn’t that bad.” But if you are reluctant to do normal activities such as go to a movie, workout, or pick up your child because you are afraid that you might have an accident, then the right incontinence supplies can dramatically improve your life physically, mentally, and socially.
What incontinence products do I need?
The answer to this question depends on the person and their level of incontinence. For people with limited mobility and a higher level of incontinence, a product such as leak-proof diapers may be the best choice. This is because these diapers are easier for a caretaker to slide under the person to change them.
For more active adults or for those who have a less severe level of incontinence, adult disposable underwear or adult pull-ups may be the better option as these are more like regular underwear and easier to manage on your own.
Other products, such as bed pads, can be used to protect bedding and furniture. These can be either washable or disposable.
