Comfort Keepers provides discrete & professional elder home care for seniors dealing with incontinence in Anderson, SC
Most seniors look forward to their elder years, but some view aging with trepidation. Will age-related illnesses or accidents lead to a loss of independence and freedom? What if help is needed with daily living tasks or personal care? What happens when they no longer drive? These are very real concerns that warrant realistic and honest answers.
Thankfully, with Comfort Keepers elder home care, most seniors will be able to maintain their freedom, independence, and quality of life while safely residing in the comfort and convenience of their own home even if they face physical, mental, or emotional challenges. Not only are Comfort Keepers caregivers highly skilled but they are also compassionate and likable. For many seniors, especially those who require elder home care services like incontinence care, likability is even more important than a tremendous skill set.
Incontinence refers to the loss of bladder or bowel control. While it is a common issue that is often related to accidents, many medical procedures, and medications, incontinence is still a very personal and is often embarrassing. In fact, many seniors do not even want to discuss incontinence concerns with family members which can make identification and treatment more challenging. Many seniors find it easier to discuss their concerns with professional caregivers, which is another advantage to Comfort Keepers in-home support, especially since caregivers stress privacy, discretion, and the maintenance of self-esteem.
Most incontinence issues can be cured or moderated. Comfort Keepers caregivers work with a senior’s physicians to create a treatment program that works. Until the issues are resolved, seniors will likely require toileting assistance and care. Comfort Keepers provides a full range of personal care supports including toileting, bathing, and hygiene support.
Incontinence is not pleasant, but it does not have to lead to isolation or cause seniors to give up on their social calendar. In fact, with a little help they can continue to live active fulfilling lives.
