Living with incontinence

People of all ages can experience issues controlling their bladder, which can have a huge impact on their daily lives. There are different causes and types of incontinence and it is important to remember there is a wide range of services and help available to you if you are struggling. If you are very worried about your incontinence, you should arrange an appointment with your GP.

Whether it is mild or severe incontinence you are struggling with, we have something to help here at Snowdrop. We offer a wide range of incontinence products, from reusable to disposable, low absorbency to high absorbency solutions, and even solutions for night-time.

Here are our top tips for finding the perfect products to help:

• Consider what time of day your incontinence issues begin – if you only experience problems at night, perhaps you could consider or night-time options
• Consider what type of product you would like to use – are you keen on reusable products that can be washed, or would you prefer a disposable alternative?
• How severe does your incontinence feel? Use your judgement to help find the correct absorbency in pads
• Talk to one of our expert team who can recommend some options for you to try

Finding the right mix of incontinence products is often the most difficult obstacle to overcome. If you try out some pads that aren’t for you, test a few different options until you find the right combination that works for you.

Planning ahead when going on long journeys or days out may also help reduce stress or worry. Pack some spare pads or a change of underwear for practical solutions and an added piece of mind in the case of an accident. Wearing simple, loose fitting clothing without complicated fastenings can also help in a range of situations.

We know the worry or stress you may be struggling with during your incontinence issues, so we have ensured that our showrooms act as a safe space for you to visit if you are struggling. Our teams are there to provide expert advice and a friendly face to recommend some aids to help.
