Why do I need to use gloves?
Disposable gloves are for more than just keeping your hands free of messes. Using gloves while changing incontinence products or taking care of wounds reduces your risk of contracting illness or infections. Not only that, gloves actively protect the person you’re taking care of by keeping the germs on your hands away from their wounds or delicate areas.
How do I choose the right gloves?
There are many kinds of gloves because there are many kinds of caregivers! Choosing the right glove for you depends on your unique needs. Some common glove types include:
Latex gloves are by far the most common choice, latex gloves are made of natural rubber, so they stretch to fit over your hands without compromising touch sensitivity. If you have a latex allergy, consider nitrile or vinyl gloves, instead.
Nitrile gloves are crafted out of a stretchy synthetic material. A common choice at medical facilities, nitrile gloves provide virus and chemical protection, as well as low risk of punctures.
Vinyl gloves are a more affordable option commonly used by the food industry. Cheaper than other options, vinyl gloves aren’t quiet as sturdy, but work well for short-term tasks.
I need to change my loved one’s incontinence products. What products can keep my loved one and me clean and protected?
Gloves are a key component of staying hygienic while caring for loved ones, but other products can help, too.
