Incontinence is the inability to control bladder or bowels and can be caused by numerous factors such as caffeine intake, medication, urinary tract infection or aging of the bladder muscle. Certain chronic illnesses such as Parkinson’s Disease, Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and various other conditions can affect a person’s ability to manage their own toiletry.
Having incontinence issues can be incredibly frustrating and embarrassing for the individual and family members. It can be awkward when a family member is trying to provide toileting assistance or clean up after a very personal type accident.
It can be much more comfortable when a professional Caregiver or Personal Care Assistant provides help with toiletry, hygiene and adult diapers.
