Healthcare Professionals - how can we help you?
An ever increasing elderly population means that incontinence is probably taking more and more of your time and it’s not just the elderly – incontinence can affect anyone regardless of age. TENA is here to help.
I'm not involved in full-time continence care.
Are there services and support for me?
With an increasing burden on healthcare services – and often reduced funding - finding the best balance between cost and care is a real challenge for many healthcare professionals managing incontinence. That’s why TENA is here to help you to provide the highest levels of care whilst making budgets go further.
TENA can support you with the right products for each individual, along with best-practice continence care routines. With these you can dramatically reduce pad consumption, the stress and strain of work and expensive skin treatments, whilst at the same time improving life for patients, relatives and professional caregivers. By providing the best available care for each individual and their family, you can ensure that patients stay in their own homes for longer. For elderly patients especially, this can mean avoiding a dramatic change in their circumstances. Quite simply, care at home can be made more viable for all involved and that will ease the strain on budgets at the same time – after dementia, incontinence is the next most common reason for a patient to need full-time residential care.
In our Balance Cost & Care section you can see for yourself the potential impact on Community and Healthcare budgets as a whole. Throughout the rest of the site, you can find valuable tips and support for working with incontinence, such as detailed product information and many other useful resources to help you in your daily work, and to provide better care at a lower total cost.
