My parent is being antisocial because of their incontinence.
It's natural for your loved one to feel self-conscious about their incontinence in social situations. But if their fears are preventing them from living a full, connected life, help may be required.
First, let them know that incontinence is nothing to be ashamed of; it's a common issue that millions of people live with everyday. And with the right protective hygiene products, it's easily manageable—even in social situations.
Second, research specific products. You'll find a wide range of protective hygiene products in many sizes, designed for a variety of incontinence needs here. If your loved one knows they're protected against wetness and odor, they'll feel more comfortable socializing.
If they're mainly concerned about the unpredictability of incontinence, a Bladder and Bowel Diary is a great way to make bathroom visits more predictable.
