Dignified Incontinence Care at Home for Seniors in Richmond, VA and Surrounding Areas
Incontinence is an issue for many seniors. Age-related difficulties, side effects from medication and chronic health issues can lead to incontinence, which in turn can cause health problems or further aggravate existing issues. For seniors who wish to remain independent, it’s important that they get the care they need to manage incontinence issues so they can remain healthy and comfortable throughout their golden years.
At Visiting Angels, we provide dignified incontinence care at home for elderly adults in Richmond, Mechanicsville and surrounding areas in Henrico and Hanover Counties in Virginia. Our caregivers can help your loved one get cleaned up after an accident occurs and monitor your loved one’s well-being while also treating them with the respect they deserve.
How Our Caregivers Help Seniors in the Richmond Area Manage Incontinence Issues
When we provide incontinence care at home, our goal is to minimize embarrassing moments as much as possible. This means both cleaning up instances of incontinence and noting when accidents occur to make it easier for medical professionals to find the cause of the problem.
If an accident occurs, our caregivers will wash any soiled sheets or clothes. They can also assist your loved one with bathing, dressing and getting to the toilet if they have mobility issues. We aim to work as quickly as possible in order to minimize the likelihood of any health issues. Our home health care services are also discreet, so our clients don’t feel embarrassed.
Our caregivers can also keep a log of your loved one’s daily bathroom habits and include incidents where an accident occurs. These logs can help your loved one’s doctor understand how often these incidents occur and work toward finding what’s causing the incontinence. That way, your loved one can get the care they need in order to remain comfortable.
At Visiting Angels Richmond, we work around your loved one’s schedule, not the other way around. Our caregivers can be scheduled for as little as a couple hours a day to 24 hours a day. That way, your loved one can receive the incontinence care they need when they need it most.
