Senior Incontinence Care
At True Blessings LLC, we provide personal assistance services for seniors. We understand the hardships associated with aging. Our goal is to provide dignified care for each client in the comfort of their own home.
Aging adults often suffer from some form of incontinence. Incontinence is defined as the loss of bladder control. Incontinence can occur due to a variety of reasons. Medications, illness, and loss of mobility are just a few reasons an older adult may be suffering from incontinence.
Help is available. Incontinence can be humiliating. Often it is difficult for the elderly to admit this is a problem. It is even more difficult to ask family members for help. This is where True Blessings fits in.
The staff at True Blessings understands the trials associated with incontinence. We are armed with techniques that can help improve incontinence in addition to providing care and support for seniors experiencing this problem.
How We Can help
Support for seniors with incontinence includes assistance to get to the facilities. As bodies age, mobility decreases. It is difficult to make it to the toilet on time. True Blessings caregivers can assist seniors with navigating to the bathroom before an accident occurs. Following a specific schedule of bathroom visits daily might also be helpful. Aging body signals can be unreliable. Seniors can have a difficult time recognizing when they need to go to the toilet. Scheduled times can alleviate some of this stress. If necessary, there are always incontinence support pads. These can be worn day and night. They are super absorbent and should be changed and disposed of regularly.
When an older adult suffers from incontinence, it is embarrassing. Stains and odors can enhance the embarrassment. The key to providing incontinence care is patience. True Blessings offers patience and understanding to adults experiencing this issue. We strive to provide care that allows seniors to remain in their homes while allowing them to age with dignity. When accidents do occur, bed linens and clothes must be cleaned promptly to reduce odors. In addition to helping seniors tend to soiled clothing and linens, True Blessings will also assist seniors with personal hygiene after an accident. Cleansing soiled areas will reduce embarrassing smells and promote health. Our staff will work with each senior to provide the best support and cleanest environment possible.
At True Blessings we also understand that aging occurs not only with the body, but also with the mind. Incontinence problems can be complicated when patients are suffering from dementia, Alzheimer’s, or other mental conditions. Our staff is trained to provide care for adults with these complications as well.
No matter what incontinence issues might be of concern, True Blessings is available to provide individualized assistance and support for seniors in the comfort of their home.
