In Home Elder Care & Incontinence Support In Durham, NC
Comfort Keepers can help with incontinence as a part of our in home elder care plans for seniors
Having incontinence can cause many seniors to isolate themselves due to the nature of the problem as well as the embarrassment that comes with it. It is not necessary for your loved one to suffer in silence however. Comfort Keepers understands how incontinence can put your loved one’s independence at risk and how difficult it can be to find a solution. The good news is that there is very likely a good solution! Often incontinence can be cured by behavioral or dietary changes, or with medication changes or additions. For the few times incontinence cannot be cured, that is where Comfort Keepers and our professional and compassionate in home elder care come in.
Professional Senior Care Makes all the Difference
We believe the first step to overcoming the discomfort and embarrassment your loved one might feel is for our caregivers to lead the way with compassionate and professional care that can help put them at ease. Many seniors struggle with incontinence, and we have found that by handling it in a confident and compassionate way we can reduce your loved one’s stress and help them regain their sense of confidence and independence again.
How Incontinence Affects your Loved One
Incontinence can rob your loved one of their confidence and seriously affect their emotional wellbeing. It may cause them to not want to go out of the house and make it difficult for them to want to be around other people. In addition to impacting their emotional and social wellbeing it can also affect their physical wellbeing and it can have an economic impact as well.
Most incontinence is a symptom rather than a condition in and of itself. Regardless of its causes it is one of five types of incontinence:
- Functional incontinence
- Stress incontinence
- Urge incontinence
- Overflow incontinence
- Mixed incontinence
If a client is not sure why they are incontinent or what type it is, they may need to get a diagnosis. A doctor can tell them if it is curable. If not, Comfort Keepers of Durham, NC can help manage incontinence with our exceptional in home elder care plans.
