Aging Gracefully When Your Older Loved One Is Incontinent

Aging Gracefully When Your Older Loved One Is Incontinent

We'd all like to age gracefully, but that grace depends on a lot more than we may originally consider -- and a lot that's beyond our control. As the 75 million American baby boomers age into retirement, many will be caring for aging parents (if they aren't already). That's why more conversations about some of the less-than-graceful realities of later life must happen -- at home, among friends, and in the community.

Incontinence is one of these often undiscussed realities, and it affects 50 percent of older adults (ages 61+). And it's not just a challenge to those living with it, it's a challenge to the people caring for someone who can no longer maintain their own incontinence needs. It requires a change of lifestyle and a new level of dependence for the older adult, and a steep learning curve for the caregiver.

Facing the challenges of incontinence can quickly become overwhelming. It shifts the nature of relationships, changing sons, daughters, spouses, grandchildren, neighbors, and friends into caregivers; it crosses boundaries of privacy and comfort, and pushes the definition of care.

When looking for the best incontinence products, it seems caregivers have more details to consider than they have time in a day: What is the most effective product?” What can I afford?” What company is aligned with my values, concerns, needs? Finding time to shop for adult diapers is a challenge too. 

When you only want the best for Mom, Egosan has your caregiver concerns covered. Their innovative products and Italian design puts the comfort and protection of your loved ones first. Egosan's adult diapers are environment-friendly and caregiver-friendly, with different styles for the diverse needs and abilities of every consumer. And perhaps the best part for caregivers? You can order them online and they're shipped right to your or your loved one's home or care community. 

Caregiving is a job that requires energy, generosity, and a little bit of grace all its own. Investing in a product to lighten the worries of the day-to-day needs of a loved one is an investment worth making. Aging gracefully is not easy, but when done right, it makes all the difference.

We used to love camping in national parks, so I’ve been urging her to get back to that. We have all the aids needed for her walking as this park has good accommodations for disabilities, but she’s afraid of the long trip because she’s incontinent. She knows she’ll have to change pads frequently and she’s afraid of leaks and just overall embarrassment. She also knows that she won’t be able to shower often...

...Socialization is vital to aging well for both of you, which means that somehow, he has to come to terms with his incontinence as an inconvenience rather than the beginning of the end as you put it to any quality of life for him and for you as a couple.
