Incontinence is a condition which can affect people of all ages - from children through to elderly adults - and is often a difficult subject for many to talk about, due to the stigma attached to it.

Being part of the healthcare industry, we know incontinence is a much more common issue than a lot of people realise and we believe it should be addressed more openly. However, we also understand the hesitancy from those with the condition to discuss their experience.

That's why we now have our full range of top-brand incontinence products online, for discreet ordering of your necessary everyday needs. From washable children's knickers and briefs, to waterproof bed protectors and absorbent chair covers - we've got you covered.

Plus, our selection of incontinence pads are now available from just 15p each - meaning you can stock up without forking out. See our full range of incontinence products here: http://bit.ly/1jgTLpq

Today is World Alzheimer's Day. Alzheimer's Disease is the cause of 60-80% of dementia cases, which is an astonishing figure. One day we hope to put an end to Alzheimer's altogether, but until then our aims are to help those living with the disease to live more independently and make life a little easier for their dedicated carers. You can find expert advice on specialised equipment in our blog below.

In 2014/15 the number of people attending A&E reached a staggering 22.4 million - many of these being older people. With departments across the country struggling to keep their heads above water, we look at what can be done to make living independently safer for longer and help reduce avoidable admissions to A&E.

As the 6th International Carers Conference kicks off in Sweden today, UK Baroness Jill Pitkeathley OBE reminds us of a few things:
1. Caring is not confined to any one section of the community, carers can be anyone & caring should be everybody's issue.
2. Carers provide care in the UK to the tune of £119bn - the cost of a whole other NHS service!
3. With this is mind, we can't afford NOT to support family carers.
4. Carers have a right to life outside caring.
5. There are new, important rights for UK carers in the Care Act 2014 but funding is still inadequate to support carers.
6. "The carers voice must continue to grow".

Caring for someone with Alzheimer's is a big responsibility, but thanks to innovations within this sector there are now many aids which can make life easier and safer for you and the person you care for. As today marks the beginning of World Alzheimer's Month, we want to share some of those innovations with you and help others understand what Alzheimer's is all about.

Living independently can be tough for some people - particularly if they experience serious mobility or functionality issues through disability or an age-related illness.

Often in these cases, more robust support and assistance is required - usually through the aid of a carer. You could be a hired professional or you could be a loving family member; either way you need to be sure the person you care for has access to only dependable, trusted aids, designed to make their daily routine as simple as possible.

We've put together a short guide to help you consider which items are worth implementing around the home in order to encourage independent living for the person under your care.

Sure the weather in England can be unpredictable at times, with many of us staying indoors on those chillier days, but Summer often brings the promise of bright, sunny climes - making us feel more chipper and ready to face the world.

Of course, if you're unsteady on your feet it's unlikely to make much difference what the weather is doing as going outside can be an anxious, sometimes frightening, prospect.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

At NRS, we offer a range of rollators that will support you as you walk and reduce the risk of falls outdoors - meaning you can get out and soak up the sun (as and when it turns up) this Summer, with less worry.

Take a look at our short guide on how to choose the right rollator for your needs and don't let anything stop you from taking a leisurely stroll in the warm weather.

If you're living with arthritis, Parkinson's Disease or recovering from a stroke, it's likely you'll experience problems with your hands, resulting in poor grip and difficulty in preparing food.

This can be particularly challenging during the school summer holidays, where family mealtimes are much more regular and eating out with others (at a BBQ for example) is highly likely.

But you'll be pleased to know there are a number of aids available to make eating and drinking easier. Of course, everyone is different and has individual needs, which is why we've put together a "How to choose" guide to help you pick the right eating and drinking aids for you.

Today we're celebrating International Youth Day which, on the surface, may seem strange - after all, we predominantly promote independent living for the elderly.

But it may interest you to know that we also support disabled children by offering a wide range of aids to make their lives, and the lives of their carers, easier. Our award-winning Seahorse Sanichair for example, has been exclusively designed by our in-house development team to make washing and toileting less complicated for children with a debilitating disability .

These young people show immense courage and strength in carrying out their daily routines, despite the adversity they face, which is why we commend them today.

In addition, we also commend the millions of young carers across the UK, without whom many parents and family members would be lost. They are all heroes and deserve to be recognised for their incredible acts of love and willing sacrifices.
