Dignified Incontinence Care for Seniors in Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties, CA

Visiting Angels provides discreet and dignified incontinence care for seniors in Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, Marina and surrounding communities along the Central Coast region of California

Incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine (urinary incontinence) or bowel movement (bowel incontinence) that is often found in older adults.

It can develop as a result of a health problem or medication side effects, in which cases the primary condition needs to be treated or medications changed.

Older adults with incontinence typically need in-home care in order to get cleaned up after accidents and keep track of daily incidents for their physician.

While it is understandable that seniors are not very eager to speak of this problem, it is important to take steps to reduce the number of episodes or stop incontinence altogether.

At Visiting Angels Central Coast, our incontinence care for seniors can help your loved one with both types of incontinence and ensure they lead a dignified life and maintain their well-being and independence at home.

What Does Incontinence Care for Seniors from Visiting Angels Central Coast Include?

When caring for seniors with incontinence, our primary goal is to improve comfort and self-confidence and minimize embarrassing accidents. Our incontinence care consists of two parts: cleaning up after accidents and writing down when they happen so medical professionals could easily determine what is causing the issue.

When it comes to cleaning up after incontinence occurrences, our caregivers help seniors with getting to the bathroom, bathing, and dressing. They also clean any soiled clothes or sheets and furniture. When assisting after an incident, our caregivers make sure to work quickly and compassionately in order to reduce any embarrassment.

As for writing down when accidents happen, it is important to keep a diary of your loved one’s toilet habits and stress when incontinence happens so that doctors would be able to determine its causes and prescribe adequate treatment.

Our in-home care for seniors is not just personalized, it is flexible. We provide part-time, full-time and 24-hour care, making sure your loved one gets the help and support they need whenever they need it. You should also keep in mind that incontinence care is just one part of our caregiving puzzle. We can help your parent or relative with a number of other activities of daily living, from light housekeeping and medication reminders to meal planning and transportation to appointments. With us, your loved one can safely remain at home as they age and enjoy a higher quality of life.
