Incontinence Care & Other In Home Care Services in Reading, PA & Surrounding Areas
There are many factors that can cause incontinence in seniors including health issues, dementia or Alzheimer’s, and even some medications. For seniors, incontinence can be an embarrassing and demoralizing problem that might make them reluctant to ask for help. At Comfort Keepers®, we understand that every person has an inner spark that age and illness cannot take away. Our goal not only to fulfill daily home care needs, but also bring a sense of hope, connectedness, purpose, and most importantly joy in your senior loved one’s lives.
Elevating the Lives of Seniors for More Than 2 Decades
If your senior loved one begins experiencing incontinence, we recommend keeping a journal of the occurrence to help your loved one’s doctor diagnose the cause of the problem. A home caregiver from Comfort Keepers can help your senior loved one maintain a log, but more importantly, assist with keeping them comfortable and dry throughout the day or night.
Medications can also cause incontinence in seniors. Some sleeping pills and anxiety medications list incontinence as a possible side effect. If you notice that your senior loved one experiences incontinence after starting a new medication be sure to bring that up with your loved one’s doctor.
In Home Care Services that Nurture, Provided by People Who Care
When your senior loved one is suffering from incontinence the best thing that you can do is to be compassionate and kind without being judgmental. Your loved one is likely embarrassed and may be frustrated at their inability to control their body. Remember that they are not doing this on purpose to irritate or frustrate you.
