Caregivers. We, as a community, owe these individuals so much, especially when the person for whom they care suffers from incontinence. They dedicated their lives to caring for those who are less able, our loved ones and friends. The job can be both physically and emotionally exhausting, and sometimes thankless. Quite often, these professionals simply don't get the attention, recognition, and thanks to that they deserve. To be honest, unless things go wrong, much of their hard work may go by unaddressed.
If you have hired an individual to care for a member of your family or a friend who is suffering from incontinence, it is critical that you check in on them regularly. In addition to letting them know you appreciate what they do, you also want to ensure that the care provided is appropriate. It is not unusual for caregivers to experience incredible stress and even burnout. When this happens, the care they provide can be compromised.
Caregivers and the families for whom they work need to be aware that these feelings are common and normal. Below we have shared some of the most common signals associated with this.
Caring for individuals who suffer from incontinence is challenging. The physical aspect of the work is taxing. Lifting, cleaning, and laundry can be exhausting. And, the emotional impact is considerable. Those who suffer from incontinence usually fall into two categories - those who are unaware and those who know and become embarrassed. Caring for both types of people requires significant empathy - caregivers often feel terrible when accidents happen.
Bottom line, take the time to regularly check in with your caregiver (and, if you are a caregiver - do regular self-checks). Keep your eyes and ears open. And always remember to say thank you!
