Non Medical Home Care For Seniors With Incontinence In Southbury, CT
Comfort Keepers offers non medical home care in Southbury, CT for seniors who want discrete and professional help to deal with incontinence.
Incontinence does not just impact a senior's physical abilities, it also affects their self-confidence, self-esteem, and quality of life. Seniors who suffer from incontinence may have difficulty completing household chores, shopping, or even getting out and about and socializing. Based on the cause of the incontinence, they may also be unable to perform other daily living tasks or personal care activities. Common causes of incontinence are accidents, chronic and progressive illnesses, and medication side effects.
Incontinence is usually curable once it is diagnosed and effectively treated. Sadly, many seniors do not ask for help because of embarrassment or fear that they may be deemed unable to care for themselves and moved to an assisted living facility or nursing home. Comfort Keepers can help with custom tailored non medical home care.
It is often easier for seniors to talk to professional caregivers about personal care issues than it is to talk with family or friends. Not only does this help get the situation out in the open, but caregivers are also equipped to deal with incontinence issues and suggest proper supports. Comfort Keepers’ non medical home care works with the senior and their medical team to develop and implement a personalized treatment program. Caregivers provided the emotional and physical support they need to be successful.
Whether supports are required short or long-term, caregivers follow a personalized care plan custom-tailored to meet a senior's unique needs. In addition to incontinence support, caregivers can address a plethora of homemaking and personal care needs that range from light housekeeping and laundry to toileting and perineal care to bathing, grooming, dressing, and transferring and positioning. All supports are available from a few hours a week up to full-time 24-hour care, 365 days a year.
Incontinence can cause a senior a great deal of stress, anxiety, and self-doubt. With Comfort Keepers’ non medical home care support, it does not have to.
