Living with or caring for someone who suffers from incontinence requires patience, love, and a whole lot of preparation. As you likely know, damage resulting from urine leakage can be considerable. The stains and odor are difficult and often impossible to remove. Even when it seems like your mattress or furniture is clean, a residual stain and smell often remain.
That said, taking a proactive approach to protect your furniture, automobiles, and mobile devices is important. All of these items are costly and increasing their useful life is wise. Regularly replacing furnishings is simply not a feasible alternative.
Luckily, today’s incontinence marketplace is filled with items to be used to protect your belongings. The choices are considerable. Selecting the best options is critical in caring for your property and helping to provide peace of mind for those whom you love.
Disposable Incontinence Products
Disposable, or one-time use, incontinence products are seemingly everywhere. If you suffer from incontinence or care for someone who does, you have likely seen them.
Generally, these blue and white (or solid white) pads are readily available in a range of sizes. They are absorbent and designed for a single-use, meaning they must be disposed of if any type of leakage occurs, which can often be daily.
These pads are of good value. They are easy to use and provide adequate protection. That said, over time they can become expensive as they constantly need to be replaced. Additionally, they are lightweight and are simply “placed” in a bed or atop a piece of furniture. Thus, they tend to move and slip, often leaving areas unprotected. Finally, they do tend to have an “institutional” appearance; there is no doubt as to why they are present and can draw unwanted attention to someone suffering from incontinence.
Long-Lasting Incontinence Products
Reusable, or long-lasting incontinence, products are also readily available today. At Liquaguard®, we are proud of the quality of the range of products we offer.
The value of investing in reusable incontinence products is considerable. First, they are created specifically for the items on which they will be used. This means they are designed to fit and offer complete coverage. Because of the ways in which they are made, they are unlikely to slip and move; coverage is consistent preventing accidental damage to your belongings.
Reusable products are also made to be washed. Made from commercial-grade fabrics, they are created to be especially durable as they can be laundered in institutional machines. These products shrink and fade resistant and are designed to be used over and over again.
Finally, many long-lasting products are manufactured in the colors and fabrics common to households across the country. This means that when you use them, they look like they are part of the decor; they belong in your home. They do NOT scream “incontinence protection” and draw attention to your medical issues or those of the people you love. Instead, they simply match the design of the home, helping to protect the privacy and dignity of those who need them most.
