Incontinence is experienced by nearly 400 million people worldwide. It affects people differently, but overall, it has the ability to compromise your quality of life.
When dealing with incontinence, our routines have seen us through. Now with COVID 19, things are different.
Urinary incontinence is the loss of control over your bladder, and this condition affects adults more often as they age. There are multiple causes that may contribute to this condition, and the symptoms vary from mild to severe depending on the individual. Talk to your doctor if you believe you are experiencing urinary incontinence and they can recommend the appropriate treatments.
Both urinary incontinence and chronic illnesses can be challenging and, at times, isolating to deal with -- but it's important to remember that you are not alone in facing either of these problems. If you have a chronic illness and are facing urinary incontinence, there are many other people like you who are dealing with the same issue.

Incontinence is a common condition affecting approximately 13 million Americans (possibly more because many of those living with it may feel shame, embarrassment or anxiety, and do not feel comfortable discussing the topic). It is estimated that the 70% of people with incontinence don’t seek help for their problem. Needing help and being vulnerable is something that is hard to accept for many people, especially those who have played the role of caregiver throughout their lifetime, making it even more difficult to accept care for themselves.
We recently sat down with Tom Mendelsohn from Professional Medical Supply who now carries Attends Premier, the newest product line from the Attends brand. We wanted to ask him a few questions about how customers are reacting to Attends premier, why they like about the product and what keeps them coming back to the store.
It's Normal. It’s in the title of a children’s potty-training book- a book you’ll see in nearly every single kid’s room. It’s a book that we use to teach our kids that going to the bathroom is just an everyday, ordinary thing- Everybody Poops.
