Pack smart and plan ahead
When you’re away from home, it’s a good idea to make sure you have a little extra of everything — just in case. Consider the different environments you will encounter during your travels. Whether you enjoy nature, power shopping or delving into fine arts at a museum, make sure you bring enough of your supplies and accessories to suit each situation. Have you made an activity plan for your trip? It’s a good idea to make a corresponding bathroom plan, too. There are many tools which can help you locate convenient restrooms wherever you are, such as websites or smartphone apps like the WheelMate.Long journey?
Prepare for it
Long travels can be a challenge. If you will not have access to restrooms during the journey, consider a catheter and bag solution. If it’s impossible for you to catheterize during the journey at all, talk to your doctor or nurse about another solution (could be a short-term indwelling catheter). Always try any alternative solutions out at home first, so you can get comfortable with the new product.
