Caring for someone with incontinence

Tips & information for carers

If you’re a carer, you’ll know that life can be difficult and demanding. If you care for someone who suffers from incontinence, it can add to daily stresses and make everyday life even more challenging.

At Boots, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to equip yourself to help care for your loved one. As well as our great range of incontinence products, including pads, pants, liners and more, we have some wonderful benefits of shopping with us.   


Value

When it comes to our bundles and multipacks, we offer incredible value for money. You can buy in bulk and save more, compared to purchasing products individually.


Convenience

Ordering online from boots.com is incredibly convenient. You can choose to have your order delivered straight to your home address or to a local Boots store, where you can collect it at a time that suits you.


Tips for carers

A few simple steps can make a huge difference to both you and the person you’re caring for, so here are some of our top tips:

Put them at ease – let your loved one know that incontinence is really common and can affect people of all ages and from all walks of life. Let them know that they don’t need to feel ashamed or embarrassed, and that they aren’t alone.

Be prepared – it’s a good idea to stock up on incontinence products so that you’re never left in the lurch. Bundles or multipacks are a great choice.

Prevent incidents – make sure they take regular toilet breaks (once every couple of hours).

Plan ahead if having a day out, making plans can take a lot of hassle out of the trip. For example, packing a bag beforehand or checking out where the nearest toilet facilities are.
