Urinary incontinence can be an embarrassing problem if left unmanaged, especially for people with limited mobility like older adults. But with modern healthcare tools and resources, this problem can now be addressed with the help of in-home caregivers. However, any type of care provided to individuals with incontinence issues should be evaluated thoroughly first for optimal results.
At Home Caregivers Management, Inc., a trusted home care provider in California, we specialize in incontinence care for people with:
- Overflow Incontinence
This involves constant urine leaks due to a bladder that does not empty properly. Certain medical conditions can cause this problem, such as diabetes, enlarged prostate, and spinal cord injuries.
- Stress Incontinence
This happens when urine dribbles as you put pressure on your bladder like sneezing, coughing, lifting a heavy object, or even laughing.
- Functional Incontinence
Individuals with stress incontinence might have a normally functioning bladder, but they may not be able to get to the toilet due to physical limitations.
- Urge Incontinence
A person with urge incontinence would feel a sudden urge to urinate, but most results in involuntary urine leak even before getting to the toilet.
- Mixed Incontinence
Some people experience more than one of the said types of incontinence above, especially stress and urge incontinence.
