My father is reluctant to use your products. How can I make him feel more comfortable?

The first time wearing a protective hygiene product can be intimidating for anyone. To make this transition easier, it's important that your loved one is properly informed. Let them know that incontinence can be modified and managed with the right products, treatment and lifestyle changes. Share information on healthy bladder and bowel function and reiterate that incontinence is not an inevitable part of aging but a common symptom of another problem. 

Once your loved one knows how common incontinence is and the steps that can be taken to improve it, protective hygiene may sound more appealing. 

Be empathetic of their feelings, and try to put yourself in their shoes. When your loved one feels understood and respected, they're more likely to be receptive to your suggestions. You can even connect your loved one with the incontinence community through online forums, so they can talk to other people who wear protective hygiene products. 

Once protective hygiene becomes part of their regular routine, incontinence becomes much more manageable and less disruptive of everyday life.
