… experience bladder or bowel control problems? It can happen at all stages of life, and for many different reasons; due to diseases, operations, and childbirth, to name a few.
The good news is there are many items and funding available to help.
Mattress Protectors – gone are the days when the only option was a plastic sweaty, noisy sheet! These days’ waterproof membranes are soft, pliable and silent. Plus you have a choice of absorbency levels and ‘feels’.
Chair and Bed Pads – these are high absorbency items that discreetly protect any chairs, car seats, and your mattress. The Bed Pads are in the form of a Draw Sheet (sometimes called “Kylies”) and come with tuck-ins to keep them securely in place, while making them easy to remove. Easy to launder and they line-dry quickly, or you can pop them in the tumble drier.
Washable Underwear – available in a range of sizes, styles and colours suitable for young and old. These items wash many times over and dry quickly. They are an economical form of continence wear but it has to be said, they cannot rival the disposables when it comes to absorbency.
Disposable Liners, Pads, Pull-ups and Wrap-Arounds – the range of sizes, styles and absorbency can be mind-boggling! Seek the advice of knowledgeable sales staff that can help you work out your day- and night-time requirements efficiently and effectively. We offer Free Samples so you can try as many items as you need to work out your requirements before spending any money.
Catheters, night bags, and more – try to find one retail outlet that can look after all your individual requirements. This way you should be assured of the best overall service.
Funding – is available through:
– the Continence Aids Payment Scheme (CAPS) to assist eligible people who have permanent or severe incontinence to meet some of their costs. Ask Medicare for the Application Form.
– the NDIS
– Aged Care Packages
