Almost 3 in 10 people in Canada are family caregivers, or more than eight million people, according to the most recent Statistics Canada study. That’s a lot of people. And caring for a loved one is physically, emotionally and financially demanding and can be a source of significant stress. Caregivers experience, as we know, emotional struggles because they feel responsible for the well-being of their loved one. It is all the more important to make it easier for them and to make it more human. TENA's mission is to provide the best products to reduce the impact of incontinence and help those suffering from it to stay active and enjoy life. It therefore chose to support caregivers who are caring for their loved ones by launching a care program adapted to personal hygiene.
The numbers speak for themselves: 1 in 3 women and 1 in 8 men suffer from urinary incontinence. Although the subject remains taboo, it must be understood that with the aging of the population, a growing proportion of Canadians will need to be cared for. But let’s not be frightened by words; the products developed by TENA maintain the dignity of those affected while providing relief to caregivers. Discomfort, irritation or pain will be a thing of the past with a proper treatment program.
A simple and effective routine
TENA provides solutions to help manage incontinence, removing moisture and promoting cleanliness and hydration. It has developed powerful and easy-to-use tools that will relieve caregivers and make life much more enjoyable for their loved ones. In fact, TENA offers a simple and effective three-step routine, including adjustable unisex brief, washcloths and protective creams to optimize the daily comfort of those requiring care. Because without prevention, a person’s skin won’t stay healthy!
Three steps for peace of mind
1 - Very dry both day and night
2 - Always cleaner, with or without water
3 - Skin protection
Nothing could be easier to help continue a skincare routine as when the skin is drier and cleaner! TENA innovates once again with TENA Proskin Barrier Cream, which keeps the skin's surface dry and protects it from irritation. This fragrance-free cream forms a protective layer to defend the skin against attacks caused by humidity. A blend of natural oils has been added to promote rapid absorption, including jojoba, acacia, sunflower and beeswax.
Respond to needs in prevention
TENA has a vision: to simplify the intimate care routine and manage incontinence with quality products. These are designed to lighten the burden on family caregivers who will feel more supported and better equipped to care for their loved one.
