Neenah, WI (PRWEB) July 09, 2014
According to a report published in the June edition of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s Vital and Health Statistics, more than 50 percent of older Americans experience urinary or bowel leakage. According to a lead researcher and statistician at the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, about one-quarter of those affected experienced moderate to very severe urinary leakage and about 8 percent had moderate to very severe bowel leakage, as reported by Gannett.
“Incontinence affects not only one’s health, but also can cause stress, depression, isolation and even financial difficulties,” says Lynn Wilson, Founder of The CareGiver Partnership, a national online retailer of incontinence products and other home health care supplies. “It’s just as important to us that we support caregivers and seniors emotionally and socially as it is to offer the hundreds of different incontinence products we carry.”
Wilson says The CareGiver Partnership is a virtual one-stop shop for products, resources and support:
“By combining our Incontinence Product Finder with our ‘Try Before You Buy’ sample service, we’re providing caregivers with tools to help avoid the costly mistake of buying incontinence products that don’t meet their needs,” says Wilson.
Those with questions also have free access to The CareGiver Partnership’s team of knowledgeable Product Specialists, all of whom are current or former caregivers themselves.
