If you have a loved one who has been diagnosed with incontinence, it can be difficult to know how to help them. You want to help them as much as possible, but it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the daily personal care that this condition requires.
If you’re caring for someone who is incontinent, here are some practical tips for keeping them comfortable and safe:
- Keep some extra adult diapers handy at all times. You never know when an accident may happen.
- Make sure you have enough absorbent pads and wipes on hand, so you can change the bedding when needed.
- If possible, try to keep your loved one away from stressful situations. This will help them feel less anxious and less likely to have accidents as a result of their condition.
- Don’t forget about yourself. It’s important to take care of your own needs and get adequate rest, so you don’t become exhausted or irritable. If this happens, the quality of care you provide will suffer greatly.
