The needs of each senior are unique. Some only need a little help cleaning up around the home or doing laundry, some need help getting from place A to place B. Other seniors need help that is a little more personal in nature. One of the most common of these issues is incontinence care.
Incontinence refers to the loss of bowel or bladder control. It is something that can be highly embarrassing even though it is a very common problem among seniors. In fact, according to WebMD, "nearly 50 percent of people aged 65 and older living at home reported bladder and/or bowel incontinence." The actual numbers are likely even higher since many seniors may have suffered in silence out of fear or embarrassment.
