Yes, we are even on YouTube!  This will look more like a "Home Movie" than a professional advertisement.  Mostly because it is a "Home Movie".  You can see John doing a demonstration of two products side-by-side.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE TEAM HERE AT DKC

We like to take this time to thank all of our COMMUNITIES for putting your Trust in us this past year. We pride ourselves in providing the best service and top of the line quality products for your residents. We are looking forward to giving the same quality of service and fine products that your residents have enjoyed this past year. Thanks

Many communities have thoughtfully delighted their residents by offering our educational Wellness Clinic Presentation that discretely address the needs of those that are incontinent. The clinic includes a 30 minute presentation that will enlighten the audience on what incontinence is and which products will best manage it. There is a Q&A session after the presentation as well as giving out free samples for those that are interested. We leave it up to the individual to contact us if he or she would like to use our products and services

Please call or e-mail me your date. Times available for Presentations are M-F 10am until 3pm.

URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS

 

For women, the risk of Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) is highest after menopause.  About 20% of women over 65, will contract a UTI.

If an individual develops a UTI, that person is 7 times more likely to have another UTI within the next 12 months.  If they develop a second or third UTI, that person is 18 times as likely to have another UTI within the next 12 months. 

 

Older adults who are immobilized, catheterized or dehydrated are at increased risk for UTIs.  Nursing Home residents, individuals that are incontinent and / or individuals that are disabled are at very high risk for developing a UTI. 

 

Up to 40% of elderly patients, in Nursing Homes, will contract a Urinary Tract Infection.
