How do I choose the right products for my loved one?

For many caregivers, finding the right protective product can seem like a challenge. There are just so many factors to consider: Which brand should you choose? What level of absorbency do you need? How in the world do you figure out the right size?  If you're frustrated, you're not alone. We're here to simplify the selection process. And since Prevail® is the #1 ranked protective hygiene brand in Home Healthcare*, you know you're in the right place. 

First, you should consider the type of incontinence your loved one has and the amount of leakage that results. Incontinence symptoms vary from person to person, so each Prevail product is designed for a particular level of leakage, ranging from light (the occasional dribble) to frequent, heavy flows. Here's an overview of the types of incontinence, the level of leakage they cause, and the best product solutions. If you need help finding the right fit, our Height/Weight charts can help.

Once you understand the type of incontinence your loved one has and their level of leakage, you're ready to choose the right product for them. To make the process even easier, use our Product Finder tool to find the best solution for your loved one.
