personalcarekit_titleLongevity seems to run in my family. In fact, just this past weekend we celebrated my maternal grandmother’s 90th birthday. My paternal grandparents are 94 and 95.

This longevity hasn’t come without health challenges, however. My maternal grandmother had a significant stroke about eight years ago and my paternal grandmother had a major stroke a year and a half ago.

To help my grandmothers maintain their dignity and also to help with their everyday personal care, I made some personal care kit. These kits are perfect for putting under a bathroom sink or in a cupboard so it is easily accessible for whenever the need arises.

What happens in the bathroom is personal business, and there is nothing more embarrassing than having to have someone help with something so personal. This is why I filled the kit with everything that might be necessary in the bathroom, including petroleum jelly, soothing baby powder with aloe, wet wipes, and some Poise light absorbency liners. This way everything that they could need is right within arm’s reach.

The best part is with these pads, bladder leakage doesn’t have to interrupt their lives. So whenever the leakage comes from coughing and sneezing, or possibly because they weren’t able to get to the bathroom quick enough because of mobility issues, Poise liners have them covered.

They have all-around leg elastic and a smooth, close-to-body fit. It is soft, quiet, and breathable which makes for outstanding comfort.

Another really neat thing is that when you purchase specially marked Depend underwear and open the package, there will be a sticker inside. Take the sticker to the Sam’s Club pharmacy to receive a free caregiver sample kit.
