The Challenges We Face in Elder Care
Whether it’s you or a loved one, we’re getting older and every day activities are getting harder to do. One of the most basic is proper bathroom hygiene and when that isn’t done well, the problems begin to multiply.
Dignity and Independence
bidets help with elder careWhen we’re young, we rely on mom for everything. She fed feed us, bathed us, taught us, kept us safe and wiped us, a lot. When mom can no longer take care of herself, the shoe is on the other foot. You can’t always be there and frankly she doesn’t want you to be…or anyone for that matter. Mom is independent and wants to stay that way. So much so she probably didn’t tell you about the fall she took, the fender she scraped or the fact that toileting is getting harder. It’s embarrassing and frightening for her to admit any of these. She’s worried you’ll take away the car, hire someone to look after her or worse, move her out of her home. Of course, dad is concerned about these same things…and probably more so.
What’s the big deal?
Urinary Tract Infections affect 50-60% of women at some point in their lives. Especially common in older women, their bodies respond to the infection differently then younger women. Sudden behavior changes including increased signs of confusion, agitation or withdrawal are often confused with dementia and the UTI goes untreated too long, spreading to the bloodstream and becoming life threatening.
Out with the Bad
The simple truth is our bodies are designed to get rid of waste. Keeping it close to the skin because of improper hygiene is an invitation to infection, discomfort and disease. Challenges in cleansing can lead to complications in many areas. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
