In the United States, about 10-13 million individuals have urinary incontinence, but it’s suspected that more cases of incontinence go unreported due to the social stigma. Many Americans don’t address the issue for years until it’s too late. Left untreated, incontinence can cause urinary tract infections, falls, and contact dermatitis. When families are unable or unwilling to deal with this problem with their elderly loved ones, they often commit their parents or grandparents to a nursing home, which is the most dreaded destination for the aging population. Why not get 24-hour in-home care for your loved ones? You kill two birds with one stone: your elderly loved ones get to stay in the comfort of their own home and you don’t have to deal with toileting care anymore. A-1 Home Care in Tustin takes the load off your shoulders with in-home care at affordable rates.
24-Hour Incontinence Care Relieves Family Members
One of the most difficult tasks in caring for an elderly loved one is personal care, which means helping a loved one with showering, bathing, dressing, transferring the loved one to and from the toilet (most likely from a wheelchair), especially in the middle of the night. Too often, seniors don’t just get up once during odd hours; they wake up multiple times because they cannot sleep or they have lost bladder control. It’s common for seniors to fall because they’re rushing to the restroom. If they have arthritis or mobility problems, they may trip and fall and make the problem worse. When you have a live-in caregiver, you can get a full 8-hour sleep without interruption because the caregiver will stay up all night to watch over your loved one, ensuring that she doesn’t fall or have any incontinence accidents.
