Continence service
Continence service

One in four New Zealanders experience regular bladder or bowel control problems. The good news is that we can help you manage the problem with no hassle.

We stock a wide range of competitively priced, quality-assured, reusable or disposable products. That means we can provide extensive information about the range of products, as well as product samples to help you choose what’s best for you.

Best of all, Enliven’s continence service is discreet and personalised. Products can be ordered from the comfort and privacy of your own home, and we’ll deliver direct to your door for free!

When should I see help?

People often ask us when they should seek help. Our advice is to speak with your GP if continence issues are concerning you. This is particularly important if you are experiencing one or more of the following:

  • trouble sleeping because you wake often to go to the toilet
  • leakage when you laugh or cough
  • wetting the bed or underclothes
  • frequently having to rush to the toilet
  • passing urine more than once every two hours.

Strengthening your pelvic floor

Pelvic floor muscles support the bladder and help to close off your bladder and bowel outlets to prevent leaking. If these muscles are weak, it can lead to incontinence. But you’ll be pleased to know that exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles are really easy! These simple exercises can make a difference no matter how severe your continence issues are.

If you would like some information about how to do pelvic floor strengthening exercises feel free to call our Health Support Coordinator directly on 04 439 4979. We’d be happy to provide some friendly information.

Continence products

For some people affected by incontinence, products such as pads may help you stay dry and comfortable. We can advise you on the right product for you, reducing the possibility of leakage or over-use of pads. We also stock products to protect skin.

Attends (disposable range)
The extensive hospital-grade Attends range are a disposable product that are suitable for people with varying degrees of incontinence and those with different lifestyles. The technology used in these products offers more dryness and comfort with less bulk, thus allowing you more freedom to remain active.

Conni (reusable range)
The Conni range is a technically-advanced range of products that are reusable, and therefore kinder on the environment and your wallet. The stylish Conni underwear range is suitable for people with mild to moderate incontinence and bladder weakness.

Both the Attends and Conni ranges are top of the line products which are affordably priced. For your convenience and privacy, Enliven Central offers free, plain-packaged home delivery for all our continence products.

Funding

Many people are not aware there is funding available, through Work and Income, to help with the cost of continence products. The team at Enliven Central can help you work through the application process.
