Oops! You (or a loved one) have just started having some bladder leakage problems. Where do you go? If you’re like most Canadians, you’ll head to your local pharmacy.
While it’s the first place most people start, many don’t know that most drugstores and pharmacies actually have a very limited selection when it comes to incontinence products.
For those who have high absorbency needs or require extended sizing, you may have noticed that products you’ve purchased from local stores are just not cutting it. The fact is that some of the best and most reliable products for managing incontinence are manufactured by specialty and niche brands that are not found in most retail outlets.
That’s where Healthwick.ca comes in. We are proud to offer Canada’s best selection of adult incontinence products in a variety of absorbencies, sizes, and materials from both national and specialty brands. Here’s a look at 5 highly-rated and reliable adult diapers that you won’t find at your local drugstore.
