and Choosing Incontinence Products.
Maintains Comfort and Well-Being
For those who contend with incontinence, it can
often be an embarrassing and emotionally traumatic experience. Patients
may feel like they are losing control of their lives or are a burden on
others, because of their condition. A large part of America's population
is incontinent, but use no products to help them to keep this problem
under control. Some may not know what their options are when it comes
to controlling incontinence. There is no need to be humiliated by these
accidents. Adult Diaper Care is here to help you get started in the
process of managing incontinence, while preserving your lifestyle and
Preserves Lifestyle and Dignity
The right products will help you preserve your
quality of life and your dignity. How? By understanding the purpose of
each incontinence product and the proper level of incontinence
protection right for you, takes away the fear of leaks and odors,
allowing you to control your incontinence with grace and confidence, as
you carry on with your normal activities.
Adult diapers or briefs are for those suffering
incontinence with maximum protection against the heaviest bowel or urine
leakage. Their adjustable tabs allow for more secure fastening and
curved leg elastic for a close fit to prevent leakage. They can easily
be put on without having to remove pants or dress. For active patients,
the best choices of protection are disposable pull ups, belted
undergarments, pads or liners. Pull ups and belted undergarments
normally provide the heaviest protection against full blown accidents.
Pads are usually used for light to medium protection, depending on the
type of pad. Liners are for medium and heavier protection for those who
have some control over their bladders. Both pads and liners come with
adhesive strips to ensure they stay in place and are comfortable. Adult
Diaper Care offers a wide selection of absorbent protective
undergarments for all types of protection. For more information, visit
Choosing Incontinence Products.
Assures Body and Environmental Cleanness
Proper cleaning techniques will maintain skin integrity and prevent
infections, just as prompt and proper disposal of soiled diapers, will
keep patient environment clean and odor free.
Prevents Skin Irritation and Infection
The first step to protecting your patient is to clean the skin. The best
way to do this is by using moist wipes or dry disposable wipes. Adult
Diaper Care offers all a selection of incontinence products that include
traditional washcloths, dry or pre-moistened disposable washcloths and
wipes that saves time and money, eliminating laundering, folding, and
storing reusable washcloths, while protecting the skin from the
potential effects of harsh cleaning and disinfecting chemicals.
Protection of the care giver is essential so gloves should be worn
before anything else is done.
The second step is to protect the skin with an ointment. Skin protection is very important, especially with an older person's skin because it is so sensitive that when accidents do happen, if skin is not protected it can lead to painful rashes, lesions or hot spots. The best ointments should be enriched with Vitamins A, D and E and should be anti-microbial. Key ingredients should also include zinc oxide and should be easy to remove. Ointments should have the ability to prevent as well as treat rashes, dry skin and other perineal skin care issues. Adult Diaper Care offers several products which meet and exceed these requirements.
