I have seen the commercials for Adult Incontinence products, you know, the ones with The Sixties Music in the back ground, the swaying hips, the winking eyes...The "I still have it" stance...Beh...Yes, I know, in advertising the process of making the public wish to be associated with your product and feel good about purchasing it is the goal.... But For GOD'S Sake PLEASE stop trying to make incontinence sexy!!! I mean EWWWW!!!!
Outside of a Water Sports meeting at the proverbial "All Things SEXUAL Convention" there really is nothing SEXY about pissing your own drawers and sitting in your own feces...Just Keep it Medical, not Social!!! Please!!!
If there ever there was a product people wanted shipped in "discrete brown wrapper" This Is It!

I agree those commericals are crazy. The commericals that bother me the most are for the ones like; Exelon patch, namenda etc... They perceive that Dementia/Alz is a "walk in the park". Well, those drug manufactures who do the commericals need to spend a day at my home or a lot of ones on here. This is definately no walk in the park taking care of someone with Dementia. They need to have commericals show the hard truth. Maybe that will make the public more aware of the growing problem with Alz/ Dementia. Maybe then the public will see what it is like from a caregivers perspective.
I know they want to market their product so it appeals to people. But misleading people to think that if their loved one wears a patch or pops a pill that everything will be okay, Is far from the truth. Because of commericals like that non-understanding people of this disease,who believe what they see on tv have "informed" me that these meds will make mom better. Yes, mom was on Namenda/Aricept but it just slowed down the inevitable.
Sorry to vent! As I was reading other posters here. I seen that Exelon patch commerical on tv. It got me fired up!!!

To loose control of bodily functions is an embarrassing and terrible situation for anyone, so I think that for those that manufacture the products to try and make them look nicer and attempt to lift the stigma that's associated with them is a step in the right direction.

How will they advertise these NASA diapers? By the ounce? Gallon?
Or the lady who drove hundreds of miles to face off her ex boyfriend's new woman?

Depends sure are necessary these days and work a lot better than the old timey adult diapers. Oh well sometimes it is not so cute, exciting or funny, but you have to lighten up at some point in your life or you would lose your cool ;-)

Some poor sap fills the tub with a hose off camera, probably a house near by location, it is cold, the actors ignore it and some advertising person thought "hey, how about two bath tubs?" cause I think you wouldn't get it past censors, to have two nekkid people in a tub, it is sort of intoned you know, two people, engaged in sensuous behavior.... But Separately! See no sex! but were Selling sex...hmm Tee Vee People....

About the Viagra commercial~
It says "seek medical attention if you have an erection for more than 4 hours"
My husband says "If I have an erection for more than 4 hours, you'll be the one needing medical attention"

My open letter:

Dear Depends,

Try out your product. It is scratchy and ill fitting. Go get some Huggies Pullups and make Depends in adult sizes with the same materials as Huggies Pullups...soft and fits well. Thank you.

I have somewhat the same response to commercials for Viagra or similar products. When they show an "older" couple dancing and sneaking off to the elevator to go to their room and do you know what. Well that is just something I do not want to think about. I often wonder how parents explain those commercials to their young children. "Mommy, what is erectile dysfunction?" Sure glad I'm not a parent these days.

Anyone watch Greys Anatomy? I used to . . .anyway there was a hilarious segment where the lady doctors had tro be in an 18 hour surgery, so they donned diapers so they could get through it - those skinny little women went swishing down the hall in their scrubs with their big puffy butts. It was priceless.

When someone asks me how my job is going, I love to answer "Depends." That's because I am, in fact, hilarious to myself. Yeah - nothin' sexy about these things HOWEVER - I will say that some tend to allow the person to wear more normal clothing than others. I think Tena is great. They show women in a Yoga class, etc, and not sexy mamas dancing. but the underwear feel really soft and siky (I haven't worn them, tho) Had a client yesterday tell me I was putting hers on backwards. She showed me the thick lining and said "This is for your butt". (She has Dementia) I said "Well, the little blue stripes are at the back, as I believe they should be, but if they feel wrong when you stand up, we'll switch 'em. Memory being what it isn't, for her, she never thought of it again... So how was HER day? Depends...

LOL...I have thought the same thing about those commercials..."yeah baby, I want to cuddle with you"....ewwwww.....give me a break! The only thing I think of when I see "depends" or even hear the phrase, "that depends" is my mother screaming because I want to change and wipe her. I am accused of trying to kill her...when's it going to end....I guess that depends! LOL Have a great day everyone...it is Labor Day but we all know that dementia takes no holiday.
