Value simulator

Experiment with this simulator, using your own values, to see how TENA Solutions for Care Homes will allow you to deliver better care and lower your costs.

In a typical care home environment, incontinence products account for about 1% of the overall yearly budget. [1] However, continence care and dealing with incontinence consequences could be up to 10% of that same budget. [2] Causes of consequence costs include inappropriate product selection and routines resulting in too many product changes and waste. 

Selection of the wrong products also leads to skin irritation and leakages – with additional laundry of soiled bedding and clothes. Incontinence-related work can also be heavy and a cause of sick leave and high staff turnover.
