Continence care is going down the pan as costs are cut and prices rise


Soemtimes a more "expensive" pad can not only promote someone's independence but also ensure someone can stay at home cared for by their relative. Incontinence is second only to dementia as the reason for goung into care, usually because for carers find difficult physically & emotionally to keep on cleaning up after tehir loved one beciase pads are inadequate and leak. Looking at cost; the cost to society financially paying for someone in residentail care far outweighs the cost of those more "expensive" pads. That's not even touching upon the social cost to us as a society.
