Choosing an Incontinence Product

A Complete Guide

     
Deciding on a product type is dependent on the type of incontinence (bowel vs. urinary), the level of absorbency needed, and personal preference. It is also important to get the correct size for the best performance. Brand is a personal preference as well, but some of our brands are more absorbent, which means they are more expensive per piece, but you will use less of them.



Disposable Underwear

Adult Briefs

Managing Incontinence

Disposable underwear are discreet, comfortable, and highly absorbent. They allow the wearer more freedom than an adult brief, so they are a great choice for active adults. We carry over 30 different types of disposable underwear for moderate to severe urinary incontinence.

Adult briefs are traditionally used to care for individuals that are bed-confined and/or experience heavy incontinence. High quality adult briefs, such as those used in care homes, are not available in retail stores. Home Delivered has a complete selection of absorbencies and sizes (including bariatric), so you can manage any level of incontinence at home. 



Bladder Control Pads

Booster Pads

Living with light or stress incontinence can be easily managed using small bladder control pads. Prevail, Dignity and Molicare pads come in a large range of shapes, absorbencies, and sizes to manage your individual needs. Our shaped pads are a discreet replacement for adult briefs or underwear if your level of incontinence is easily manageable.

Incontinence supplies

Booster Pads are inserted inside an undergarment for extra absorbency.  Urine passes through it once it is absorbed, so the undergarment and pad are both working to keep skin dry.  We have a great selection of booster pads from brands you trust like Tranquility, Dignity, and Attends.



Underpads

Ointments

Perineal Care

Underpads provide an extra layer of protection for furniture and bed linens. They can also be used to reposition the body to prevent decubitus ulcers. Disposable underpads are available in various sizes, strengths and absorbencies. Home Delivered also carries washable cloth barrier underpads to reduce waste and keep costs down.

Absorbency

Absorbency is the most important aspect of an incontinence product when it comes to urinary incontinence.  However, there is no standard for absorbency.  Manufacturers often use terms like "Ultra" and "Super" to label their more absorbent products.  "Overnight" is the most absorbent.

For bowel incontinence, it is important to change right after an event and to use ointments to maintain skin integrity. Absorbency is less important than changing immediately after a bowel event, so using a product that is moderately absorbent and cheaper per piece in conjunction with ointments for skin integrity is the best strategy.
