Urinary incontinence is a type of condition when the person does not have any control over the bladder movements, and as a result, ends up passing urine without being able to hold it in. Urinary incontinence happens to double the number of women than men.

Here is how a home caregiver can help an elderly who are suffering from incontinence:

  • A caregiver can help the person reach the bathroom in time so that there is no sudden leakage of urine. Many elderly people find it difficult to move fast enough, once they feel the urge to urinate. As a result, the urine leaks out on their dress. A caregiver will be able to assist the person in time by either helping them to walk faster or lifting them up and taking them to the bathroom.
  • If the person is suffering from incontinence, he or she will need to be cleaned regularly, in order to avoid smelling of urine. The home caregiver will help to get the person out of the soiled clothes and clean them up, and also help them get into fresh and clean clothes. They will also help to keep the bed linen clean and take precautions to make sure that the bed is not soiled.
