We're off to the fair again!
The My Liberty crew had nothing but summer on our minds as we set off to the Fair. There were no Ferris wheels or cotton candy. But we didn't expect any.
There were people. Lots of really terrific people looking for services for their family members who have special needs.
Over 100 families attended
More than 100 families visited the City of Ottawa's Special Needs Fair - Camp Version. Families strolled from table-to-table, asking questions all along about what was new, what could they learn, and what could we do to help them.
Our table was very busy, and the reason was swimwear. People told us that their kids are not being allowed in pools without swim wear to manage the loss of bladder and bowel control.
Parents said that they'd tried all sorts of products, but they just hadn't found the right ones ... yet.
Innovative swimwear for special needs
Since that first fair, My Liberty has expanded it's swimwear collection. We offer the SOSecure Swim diaper, where the swimsuit can be worn underneath a child's favourite swim suit...
...- or as a swimsuit, customized with fun patterns.
In our many conversations with parents of special needs kids, we also learned that sometimes life doesn't allow for easy access to laundry rooms, and so disposable swimwear options are also needed.
Available in a full range of sizes from 22" hip/waist (Small) through 80” hips/waist and 205+ lbs (2XL), Swimmates disposable swimwear is worn under a bathing suit to provide containment for bowel incontinence.
Inner leg cuffs help contain bowel incontinence, keeping the pool and swim suit clean. Swimmates are designed to have minimal swelling and do not break apart. Tear-away side seams are used for easy removal and disposal. Like all Tranquility Premium products, Swimmates are latex-free.
Incontinence shouldn't stop kids from being kids
Incontinence shouldn't stop kids from being kids and having fun at summer camp. Summer in this part of the world is just too short. Make the most of it.
