Elder care, after surgery care

Every so often, it’s helpful to take a look at the variety of products that we offer on TotalHomeCareSupplies.com. While all of our products are well-made and user-friendly, they all differ so much it’s easy to forget all that we carry. So let’s take a look, one category at a time:

Our incontinence products are our biggest sellers, and we’re proud that so many people get the items for their independence from us. Along with the standard adult diapers (also known as briefs) and protective underwear (also known as pull-ups), we also have pads and liners. For light bladder leakage, a pad can be more freeing than a brief. Underpads (AKA chux) are available in a variety of sizes, along with gloves and many kinds of incontinence wash.

When it comes to ostomy products, we have many of the most popular items and brands. We have both drainable and closed-end pouches. We have 90 barriers with flanges, so you’ll be able to find the product that works best for you. And we have an assortment of accessories, including stoma powder, pouch closures and odor eliminator drops – the Hollister bottle of drops has great reviews.

You can find wholesale pricing on many of the catheters, leg bags and irrigation systems we offer. Our catheters are diverse, from external items to straight tip catheters and coude catheters. You can also find the major brands, like Mentor-Coloplast, Bard and Hollister.

We have all the supplies you’ll need for your particular injury, or to fill up your first aid kit. On top of the basic items like tape, wipes and bandages, we have gauze, foam dressings and wound cleansers. If you have a checklist of the things you’ll need to properly heal a surgery wound, you can find it on TotalHomeCareSupplies.com

Baby Supplies
In addition to our adult diapers, we also carry baby diapers. Cuties diapers come in sizes newborn to size six. We also have breast pumps and a selection of accessories to accompany the pumps.

That’s about it. We know, it’s a lot of options! We hope we have everything that you’re looking for when it comes to home care supplies, but if not, we’d love to hear what we’re missing in the comments below!

Caregiver Survival Tips: Creativity as Self-Care

Posted by on February 13, 2013 under Caregiver Corner | Read the First Comment

Caring for the Caregiver

Caregiver providing home careIn times of stress, our personal needs tend to go on the back burner.  For caregivers, this happens when someone else’s needs have to come first – and this can be over an extended period of time.  Without the luxury of time or space, how do we meet our own needs?  Is there a way to confront and manage our emotions that doesn’t feel selfish, that doesn’t cost our loved ones the time and attention they deserve?

Paula Swenson says there is, and shows us the way by sharing her own journey.  In a beautifully-written guest blog article – “Creativity as Self Care in Times of Extreme Need” – the author and artist shares how she turned to creativity to handle the stress of unexpected caregiving, and then to manage grief at her ultimate loss of a partner.

“Years ago I encountered a quote, ‘The only antidote to destruction is creation’ [which] until this point in my life I had always seen…as an external battle:  to put creativity into the world to balance the destruction of war, of prejudice, or injustice.  Now as I work, I realize that I am using my creativity to rebuild my destroyed identity, my sense of self that had been shredded by the unexpected loss of my best friend and anchor, my calm port, my home.”

Through an almost instinctive need to create, she reached first for ink and paper – then shifted to other materials – and found that she could express feelings through art that she wasn’t able to express in words.  Her meditative creations, some sketched in the long hours of doctor’s visits and surgeries, became a way through.

“With a pocketable notebook and a waterproof-ink pen, I was able to shift my mind out of the frantic cycle of worry and stress that threatened to engulf me,” she writes. “I was able to focus on something tangible, something creative, and in so doing create a calm, ordered space in my mind.  That calm and order allowed me to approach the horrifying challenges in something closer to a state of balance.”

You can read more about her journey (and see some of her creations) in this article, “Creativity as Self Care in Times of Extreme Need”.  She also offers a free copy of her ebook on self care, “Care and Feeding of the Creative Self“.   As for us those of us here at TotalHomeCareSupplies, we’ll be taking some of her tips ourselves.  Because as caregivers, sometimes all we need to avoid burnout is a little help finding our way through.

Are you concerned about Caregiver Burnout?  Read this article on warning signs and symptoms, as well as tips to help you recover.  For more health information and useful tools, please visit our Resources Blog on TotalHomeCareSupplies.com.
