We keep a variety of continence equipment in a quieter area to the back of the shop including:

  • day or night pads and protective pants,
  • covers for chair, bed and mattress
  • portable urinals
  • toilet seat raisers
  • commodes
  • wipes
  • bidet bowls
  • disposable bed pans
  • information leaflets – we now have an abundance of leaflets and can photocopy any you would like.

Customers are reminded that in Dorset, used pads are disposed of in normal household waste, wrapped in newspaper or a plastic bag if heavily soiled.

Anyone unsure of what they might need is recommended to come in and talk to our volunteers who will do their best to help you.  We carry a small stock of free samples to assist you in selecting the most appropriate continence pads.

Please see details of the local Continence Clinic which provides assessment, advise, medication and management options.

Please see details of the national Bladder and Bowel Community (B&B) which provides excellent booklets and leaflets (copies of leaflets are available in the shop).

If you are leaving hospital your continence needs should be included on your Careplan before discharge and the nurse will work in conjunction with the Continence Clinic to help you.
