Get The Most Out of Your Continence Products
Are you changing absorbent continence products unnecessarily? i.e. when only damp, or changing at set times when they may still be dry. Modern continence products are so efficient they can generally be worn longer, without leaking, odour or discomfort.
The National Continence Helpline on 1800 330 066 is a free and confidential service. Managed for the Australian Government by the Continence Foundation of Australia, there’s a great range of resources available. The Helpline’s Continence Nurse Advisors can also advise about better managing incontinence, treatment options, products, funding assistance schemes, and details of local continence services.
