Incontinence Related Items to Carry on a Day Out
Traveling, even on a short trip, can be an enjoyable but stressful experience for folks with incontinence. You are at the mercy of the weather, traffic, and other passengers - but you shouldn’t be at the mercy of incontinence-related accidents.
In today’s post, we will look at some items to pack for a day out to minimize and prevent urinary incontinence related problems that could put a damper on your trip.
Disposable Underwear or Pads
When traveling with incontinence, convenience is one key to minimizing the stress of the trip. Picking the right disposable underwear or pad will provide a level of coverage and protection that you need to be comfortable. They are also easy to change, throw away, and keep enjoying your day!
Wipes are easy to carry, easy to use, and easy to dispose of when finished. Select a lightly-scented or unscented variety to avoid drawing unneeded attention to your situation.
A complete change of clothes can make a huge difference when freshening up in the middle of your trip. Pack the items that you plan to wear as an outfit, and include a few extra pieces like a sweater, a light jacket, or other seasonal items.
When accidents happen, having an extra bag to put soiled items in can make the difference between going forward or going home. Pack a wet bag or two. There are many varieties of wet bags on the market, but most are zipped PVC sacks that hold in moisture, odors, and bacteria. If not being used for dirty clothing, you can store toiletries and other leaky items in them for worry-free travel.
Pack shoes that will be suitable for the activities and the places that you plan to go. Having shoes that are comfortable and appropriate can really enhance your ability to explore your surroundings and make memories.
All the items we’ve discussed today are great to have on their own, but be sure that you have a backpack or daypack to carry everything in. Find a style and color that you want to carry and that will give you easy access to all your items.
Remember that preparing before leaving can make for a smoother trip for all involved. When planning your trip away from home, get in contact with LL Medico to learn about what products we have to make your time away from home enjoyable.
