Man is a social animal and likes to be in the company of others. However, no one likes to be near a person with urinary incontinence. A disabled and bedridden child is prone to urinate several times a day which requires frequent change of clothing and drying and involving disinfectants. This is also frequently accompanied with emptying the bowel. The obnoxious smell tends to permeate the entire living environment causing stress to the family and guests.
Having a disabled and bedridden person in a home, who has urinary incontinence, is a major challenge. Especially if the person is mentally disabled with speech impairment, who needs help and support round the clock. This problem requires frequent change of clothing, washing the connected organs using disinfectants, and drying of the clothes. This continues till the very last day of life of the disabled person.
Medical treatment including surgery is out of the question for such disabled children. Use of diapers will to a great extent alleviate the difficulties posed by this problem. Generally mothers will help in this kind of burden imposed upon them, but we have several instances of the fathers having to take over in absence of the mother due to death or employment.
Since this is a life long challenge associated with the mental disability of the affected person there is no long term cure for this situation. Only regular use of diapers is the most practical and sensible solution to handle this situation.
