Seniors who are affected by incontinence are not alone. In fact, at least half of the senior population have suffered from it at one time or another. If your loved one is living alone, you may have concerns as to whether they are able to keep up with the cleaning and maintenance that comes with incontinence. Our in-home health care services at Comfort Keepers of Marietta, GA are available to help your loved one stay dry and prevent accidents.
At Comfort Keepers, we want our clients to stay feeling fresh and comfortable. While accidents are sometimes unavoidable, we will work with your loved one to create an in-home health care service plan that can help to lessen their chances of having one. There are a few different things we might recommend. First, we’ll recommend that your loved one keep a journal of their bathroom habits. This way, we can start to find patterns. Along with tracking, we might recommend scheduled bathroom trips. This is especially useful if, after tracking, we begin to notice that accidents happen at certain times of the day. Finally, if your loved one’s doctor has recommended medication, exercises, or fluid reduction, we will help them stay on track.
If your loved one does have an accident, our caregivers will help them freshen up and clean any soiled clothing or sheets. Our caregivers work discreetly and quickly so that your loved one can get back to their day without hesitation or embarrassment.
What You Can Do to Help
As a family member or friend of a senior, it’s possible that you may find yourself with them at the time of an accident. If this happens, the most important thing to do is to be compassionate towards them. While you may be frustrated, remember that your loved one is probably feeling embarrassed. Assist them with cleaning up and washing. If you’re out and about, keep a spare pair of clothes in the car for them.
