Incontinence pads ...

User
Posted 21 Jan 2021 at 22:11

I had my prostectomy 5 months ago. At the time, I invested in a variety of different pads. Thankfully, I don't have any incontinence issues.

That's left me with a few unopened packs of pads. I've tried to give these to a local care home, but they can't take them. Seems a waste to get rid ... does anybody know of any charity that would take them?

Thanks

I bought a single pack of about fourteen Tena Lites after my surgery a couple of years ago, and I still have about five left!

Perhaps I could adapt them for use as Covid face nappies?

Cheers, John.

Same here, have a lot off Tena level 2 going spare unopened, contacted a couple of care homes but got no reply.

If anyone is in the West Sussex area and would like them please let me know.

I have returned some to the Specialist Nurse Team in the Hospital when I was still going in there. About a month ago I tried to give some to Care Homes. NHS ones refused but private were very grateful.
