Tips and Products to Help Someone Managing Alzheimer's & Incontinence
As a caregiver, you may notice little things throughout the day that give you pause. It could be noticing your loved one/patient staring blankly out the window, calling items by the wrong name or soiling their clothes when they forget where the restroom is located.
Alzheimer's is a common progressive disorder for adults. Over 5 million Americans live with Alzheimer's and severe cases may cause individuals to eventually lose their independence.
According to Caregiver.com, "...caregivers feel the strain of the disease daily as they help those affected with dementia navigate the simplest tasks..."
Luckily, there are support groups, education and incontinence supplies to help caregivers and professionals better manage the condition. In recognition of September as World Alzheimer’s Month, we have created the infographic below with tips to help someone who is managing incontinence as a result of Alzheimer’s and/or dementia. One tip includes using highly absorbent products to help prevent leaks, increase sleep and have peace of mind.
