The Candid Caregiver often receives questions from readers wondering about incontinence issues. Among them: How to console their older adult who is facing incontinence; how to convince their elder that wearing protection is far better than smelling of urine; or how to pay for the products once they are in use. Feeling the need for an expert in this area, I contacted Mica Phillips, director of urology for the durable medical equipment provider AreoFlow. Our email conversation has been lightly edited for length and flow.
