According to Seniorliving.org, “In nursing homes, over 50 percent of the elderly residents have urinary incontinence.” Obviously, this is something that facilities that cater to our loved ones need to manage.
As a result of the aging of our population, there has been a rise in the popularity of assisted living facilities. These organizations provide the elderly population the opportunity to maintain a level of independence while receiving the care they need but cannot manage on their own.
If you have a family member who suffers from incontinence, who resides in an assisted living facility, it is important to comprehend the services he or she is offered so you know the best supplies to provide, if you are required to do so separately.
On the other hand, many assisted living facilities include incontinence items as part of the services they offer their residents. For them, understanding the issues affecting each individual resident and the supplies he or she would need is critical. Facilities must ensure they have the correct products in the necessary amounts to best serve their clients.
At LIQUAGUARD®, we can help both individuals and facilities. We comprehend the needs of both and and are confident in our ability to help identify and provide the products necessary to meet them. We understand that, regardless of age, many who suffer from incontinence fail to discuss their symptoms with their physicians. We encourage all of our clients, both those who suffer and their care-givers, to be open and honest at their doctors’ appointments. Causes can be varied; incontinence may not simply be a result of “old-age” and often can be treated and some issues mitigated.
We look forward to continuing to work with individuals and institutions to assist in identifying the potential problems and alleviate many of the issues caused by incontinence. Allow us the chance help you determine how best to help those for whom you care.
