Finding incontinence solutions for a care home

Date: 15/03/21

Urinary incontinence is a problem that is very common with care home residents. It is a part of the aging process for many people, whilst there are often physical reasons, such as illness or injury, that cause differing levels of severity where incontinence is concerned. At Incodirect we have 30 years of experience in working with the care home industry to supply incontinence products that offer real solutions that help care home residents lead a cleaner, comfortable, more hygienic way of life, despite problems with incontinence.

The importance of managing incontinence product supply

Every person working in a care home understands how important it is to place the management of incontinence products as a high priority on the task list. Every care home will have policies in place to promote independence wherever possible for its residents, and with clever management of incontinence products and specialist care where appropriate this can become a reality. 

Different symptoms of incontinence

Finding the right type of incontinence solution depends on the symptoms being faced. In a care home setting it is likely that all of the following are being experienced by residents:

  • Urge incontinence
  • Stress incontinence
  • Overflow incontinence
  • Functional incontinence

How to treat and manage incontinence

After a thorough assessment of the needs of each resident, there are different ways that a care home can manage daily life and manage incontinence. If a resident is suffering with infection and that is causing incontinence, this can be treated with antibiotics; bladder training programmes can be included into regular life; diet and intake of fluids analysed; as well as improved access to toilet facilities.

Incontinence products for care homes

Every care home should provide the necessary aids and equipment to manage incontinence in residents effectively. Some residents will require incontinence bed protectors and sheets to sleep comfortably at night, others will wear incontinence pads or pants, of varying shapes and sizes depending on the severity of the incontinence in each individual. The whole idea is to have a range of incontinence products at the disposal of the care team that fit the needs of many different situations and types of incontinence. There is no one-size-fits-all but with our range of products we know we have the solutions for any incontinence issue.
