Managing Incontinence at Home

Adult incontinence is a common issue experienced by older adults as their cognitive or physical condition declines due to age or illness. Adults who are dealing with urinary or bowel incontinence use products referred to as "adult diapers" for discreet, disposable protection. Managing the personal and household challenges incontinence accidents create can be a significant source of stress for caregivers. To help families find solutions for making daily life with an incontinent adult easier and more comfortable, AgingCare has created the following list of resources and articles about adult incontinence products.
