Incontinence Management, Steps to Take & Where to Find Help

Getting a Better Understanding of Incontinence

The Canadian Continence Foundation reports that “urinary incontinence, the involuntary loss of bladder control and general bladder weakness can have a dramatic impact on one’s life!” Dramatic indeed, if you or your loved one recently began to have wet accidents, especially while out in public. It may be comforting to know that this situation is not unique to individuals or age-specific groups. Urinary incontinence affects one out of 8 Canadians, and there are over 3.3 million Canadians experiencing some type of urinary incontinence.

Continence Care, Where To Start:

Start by talking with your family Health Care Professional. Bladder control exercises may be suggested such as Kegel Exercises, where you can discreetly flex and relax pelvic muscles while sitting at work or watching TV. Chances are you’ll be smiling during the Kegel Exercises, and why not, make others wonder what you’re smiling about.

Next Steps:

Put concerns with overactive bladder to rest. When you or your loved one may need to be re-introduced to diapers, whether a young teenager, middle aged women or elderly male, embarrassment may keep family members silent. Even after seeking guidance from a doctor, people affected by involuntary bladder loss need support from home. Provide help by ordering, or showing your loved one how he or she can order many incontinence support products online at Capital Medical, including Adult DiapersPads and Underpads to name a few.

Incontinence Management:

You are in control, and online ordering makes incontinence management simpler than ever, priced right. Now you can find practically everything needed to aid mild to heavy or frequent urination at Capital Medical, including fecal incontinence products.
