How to adjust for adult incontinence
As overwhelming as a wine shop
Before we launched My Liberty, in choosing among the thousands of incontinence products we might carry, I began to feel like we were selecting wine. For a dinner party. That we were late for. Agh!
Ever had that feeling?
If you don’t know about wine, you grab the cheapest item or the one at the end of the aisle, on sale – figuring they're all the same. But – once you taste a fine wine, it is tough to go back.
Get your money's worth
It is exactly the same with incontinence products. Time and time again, I hear from customers who are mortified by buying adult diapers or pads at a store.
They hate the rustling sounds a cheap product can make in a public stall. They worry about rashes and smells and absorbency. And people want to get their money’s worth.
We can help.
Through aggressive science and solid research, incontinence protection products are improving all the time. You now have options—and excellence—that just haven’t been available in the past.
Our brands are chosen because of their outstanding construction, unbeatable absorbency, first-rate odour control, overall capacity to contain leaks and their ability to be good to your skin.
Get professional guidance, or at least a good guide
Thanks to all that textile research, today's product choices are much wider than you think. You have choices:
High quality Adult Diapers
Discreet, protective disposable underwear
Washable chair pads
Trust MyLiberty.Life to help you make the right selection at the right price.
Don't lose out to LOBC
There is a term that is becoming more common in describing incontinence - Loss of Bowel or Bladder Control or LOBC. Very few people speak freely about LOBC, especially related to themselves.
Embarrassment is a barrier worth crossing
Because incontinence talk can make us shy and cause embarrassment, many actually work to adapt their lifestyles to their condition instead of finding treatment.
This includes avoiding visiting friends and family and even stopping to the point where some are afraid to leave home at all.
Incontinence isn't about just aging
Many of my friends think that LOBC is only related to aging. The causes are wide-ranging and affect every sector of society from repetitive work-related activities such as heavy lifting to menopause and hormonal changes to cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer’s.
Share your stories
Once we start the discussion, everyone has a story. Whether it is a mother, a spouse, a father-in-law, a child or grandchild, or an uncle with prostate trouble – we are all learning about the deep, dark underground of incontinence.
Surrounded by discomfort and unhappiness, or graphic confessions like “I actually peed myself running my last race” – MyLiberty.Life offers the freedom to run like the wind, or just take a walk in the park.
Understanding begins with absorption
Start here - because everyone has the same question when faced with a wall of incontinence products - and we've answered it in our article: What do I need?
Next, we'd like to introduce you to our free MyLiberty.Life Total Capacity Rating Guide.
It seems no two manufacturers use the same language to describe their products. What's "moderate protection" to some is "heavy protection" to others.
To help you sort it out, we’ve developed a standardized Total Capacity Rating system that we use across all brands and incontinence products we sell.
At MyLiberty.Life, we are committed to helping you get what you need quickly and easily. We've got you covered, Canada!
