Our Home Health Care Aides Help Seniors in Eldersburg, MD and Surrounding Areas Manage Incontinence Issues

At Visiting Angels, our home health care aides provide dignified and discreet incontinence care for seniors in Eldersburg, Westminster, Ellicott City, Columbia, Baltimore, Randallstown and surrounding areas in Maryland

Incontinence is a common issue among seniors. While it can no doubt be embarrassing, incontinence is nothing to be ashamed of; it is a health problem that requires attention in order to be successfully managed. Fortunately, incontinence is not a serious health problem and there are ways to deal with it, but in order for it to stop or become less severe, seniors need to speak about it with their doctors.

Incontinence often develops as a result of other health conditions or medication side effects and can thus be solved once the primary condition is treated or new medications introduced. For seniors who wish to continue living independently at home, it is important that they manage their incontinence in order to stay healthy, happy and confident as they age in place. Visiting Angels Eldersburg can help your loved one with incontinence and ensure they lead a high quality of life regardless of this issue.

How Home Health Care Aides from Visiting Angels Help Seniors in Eldersburg and Surrounding Areas

At Visiting Angels Eldersburg, we understand that incontinence may cause great discomfort to seniors. Not being able to control one’s bladder or bowels can lead to frustration, anger and other negative emotions. Some seniors may decline social invitations and withdraw in themselves for fear of an accident occurring while in public.

When you start working with us, we will match your loved one with a compatible, experienced and compassionate home health care aide who will be there to assist with any incontinence accidents. Our incontinence care services include helping seniors get cleaned up after an accident and monitoring their condition and well-being in order to be able to provide medical professionals with accurate data regarding the frequency of accidents. This makes it much easier for doctors to determine what is causing incontinence and is thus easier to treat and cure it.

When an accident does happen, after taking care of your loved one, a home health care aide will wash any soiled clothes and sheets. They will provide care with the utmost discretion and compassion so that your parent would never feel uncomfortable or embarrassed.

What is also good to know is that your loved one’s chosen caregiver will always work around your family’s schedule. They can care for your parent a couple of hours a day or they can provide full-time care. 24-hour home care is also an option with Visiting Angels Eldersburg.
