Why Care About Incontinence
Incontinence is the partial or full loss of bladder or bowel control and may affect as many as 50% of senior adults. Incontinence is a condition with various potential causes. The symptoms may be gradual and progress from very mild to more debilitating and severe over several years.
Urinary incontinence is one of the most common conditions among senior living residents, and you should know:
Incontinence can create physical dependencies and increase health risks, including falls, skin problems and urinary tract infections (UTI).
UTIs are the most common type of bacterial infection in older adults and account for 23% of hospitalizations, second only to pneumonia.
Lesser quality, lower absorbent incontinence products lead to prolonged exposure to wetness, resulting in skin breakdown, infections and ulcerations.
Incontinence can impact a persons sense of dignity and emotional well-being – leakage and odor can lead to anger, depression and low self-esteem.
