Learn more about elder care in Marysville, CA
Incontinence, an involuntary, accidental elimination of urine or feces, is one of the most embarrassing issues many older adults live with. Though associated with aging, incontinence is by no means a normal part of the aging process and should be treated. In most cases, a simple change in one’s routine or medical treatment can resolve incontinence.
Tackling an Embarrassing Problem
Quite understandably, most aging adults have a hard time admitting they might have developed incontinence and would rather not talk about it at all. However, additional and more complex hygiene problems may arise when incontinence issues are swept under the rug instead of being dealt with.
At Comfort Keepers of Marysville, we can deliver a customized care plan where our elder care providers can help your loved one with their daily hygiene needs. Our practice is to build a strong rapport with the client and make every effort to minimize discomfort and embarrassment associated with this common issue. When it comes to dealing with incontinence, the most important part is simply ensuring your parent remains clean and comfortable.
Possible Side Effects
Prescribed medications often trigger incontinence in seniors. Incontinence can be listed as a potential side effect of a certain drug, or this issue may arise unexpectedly once a new medicine is introduced. On the other hand, ongoing, chronic incontinence can point to the existence of an underlying medical problem. Our elder care experts can keep a record on the frequency of incontinence accidents should you need to contact your loved one’s physician for further treatment.
Part of a Bigger Picture
While a trained caregiver can provide incontinence care on a standalone basis, it is much better when these services are an integral part of a wider elder care plan that includes all sorts of in-home services that can elevate your loved one’s quality of life to a whole new level. We can assist with homemaking, meal prep, medication reminders, provide transportation and companionship, and so much more.
