Someone to Count On
Especially when your loved one experiences loss of bladder or bowel control. So it’s good to know you have…
Since 1986, Home Delivery Incontinent Supplies Co., Inc. (HDIS), has helped thousands of caregivers find products to manage incontinence in young and old alike. We’ve taken your stories to heart, your troubles as our own and committed ourselves to making lives a little better.
In 2016, HDIS was voted one of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Top Work Places for the fifth consecutive year.
We share this honor with you because we take great pride in helping with your patient care any way we can.
It’s not easy to discuss bladder leakage and odor with a loved one, but it’s vital you do. Bladder leaks can lead to skin sores, infections, and even broken bones from falls that happen while hurrying to the bathroom. With incontinence being the second leading cause of nursing home admission, proactive care will ensure you both a healthier, happier relationship.
First, keep in mind that incontinence is never normal, not even among elderly or cognitively impaired adults. It is a recognized medical condition that can be discussed without embarrassment.
ASK FOR HELP. If your loved one’s doctor is not knowledgeable or aggressive about treatment, ask to be referred to a specialist. Referral sources are listed on the other side of this brochure.
KNOW YOUR OPTIONS. Many times, leaks can be reduced or even stopped without surgeries or medicines. Call us at 1-800-2MY-HOME® (1-800-269-4663) for free information on diet changes, pelvic muscle exercises, toilet training, and other habits that help. Your doctor can tell you even more.
Speaking of options…some types of absorbent products are made for specific conditions, lifestyles, even times of day. Have you ever been in a retail store and thought, “There has to be more”? You’re right!
We can help you choose from among pads, undergarments, briefs, protective underwear, catheters, reusable pad and pant systems, and furniture protectors. And the call costs you nothing.
