When the time came for my mother to use incontinence wear, we called them Fancy Pants! She loved it and there was no embarrassment.

It is beyond me to comprehend how in the world this "Newsletter",etc could call them Diapers. Most packages use the words "Adult Briefs or Undergarments. I personally am extremely mortified and angry when anyone asks me about my diapers. I don't know anyone who doesn't feel the same way.

Your mom is very optimistic. I don’t think many people would have as positive of an attitude.

I bet she was a ‘half full’ instead of ‘half empty’ kind of person in most areas.

Many people are depressed or terribly upset if they need pads or underwear for incontinence.

Love it! I hate the word "diaper"...there's already too many indignities in aging and decline. "Diaper" just reinforces to others that the elder should be treated like a child.

I called them briefs for my dad, he never git over the anger at needing to wear them.

So glad that your mom was not angry and accepted the fact that she needed fancy pants.

Perfect! When my husband became incontinent, and had to wear diapers, I always called them his underwear, and I made all the hospice personnel call them that as well, as they always wanted to call them diapers. You want your loved one to retain as much dignity as possible in whatever ways you can. Thanks for sharing.
