Users and relatives
When a person’s ability to function is limited due to advanced age, sickness, handicaps or just plain bad luck then it will of course affect this person. Affect the dignity and the freedom, on a daily basis even, but it will also affect the relatives. Incontinence is no gentler than any other disease.
Wear&Care® cannot cure incontinence, but it can simplify managing the problem and increase quality of life for the affected and the relatives. No matter whether the user lives in an institution or at home.
How? By limiting the amount of diaper changes, anticipate when they will take place. Wear&Care® will also help collect information about the individual user, information usable to prevent rashes and other discomforts associated with suboptimal diaper usage.
The DaneAge Association supports our cause
While we have developed and tested Wear&Care®, we have also been in dialogue with the DaneAge Association and they fortunately supports our vision and solution.
“DaneAge Association thinks that diapers must be used with dignity in nursing homes and hospitals. We work to spread the so-called call-up diapers, which notifies the personnel when a diaper change is necessary, in the Danish caring sector. This is about the elderly’s quality of life.” – Margrethe Kähler, chief consultant at DaneAge Association.
Better quality of life for the users
The tests focused on improving the working environment for the caring personnel, without lowering the service level.
The preliminary results looks promising, and shows the following:
- Wear&Care® can reduce the number of problematic moves by the personnel.
- The residents experience fewer disturbances at night, this is contributing to a better nights sleep and thereby also to a better quality of life.
The test and the results will be verified in a comparable test at the caring home Skansebakken.
