Long-term care communities and individuals with memory impairment benefit greatly from a continence management service. Education and behavioral modifications enhance the probability that people will be able to maintain, regain, or minimize the severity of their incontinence. Residents who are thought to be most at risk of developing incontinence are offered tools to help them keep control, while others acquire greater freedoms by treating reversible causes that may have caused incontinence. Even people who have persistent incontinence can learn to treat or manage their incontinence effectively.
About Our Continence Management

- Programs for self-cleaning toilets
- Changes in lifestyle to help reduce incontinence and voiding symptoms
- Product identification that can manage urine leaks, preserve skin integrity, and improve activity
- Absorbent products
- Reusable products
- Skin barriers and ointment for wound treatment

When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
If you’re above the age of 65, you’re probably thinking about how you’ll spend your retirement years. More older adults are loving the active lifestyle offered by senior living communities.
Loneliness can set in as we age, particularly after a divorce or the loss of a companion. Sadness, moodiness, and weight gain or loss are signs of social isolation and signal that a change is required. Many people are drawn to senior living communities because they want to meet new people and make new relationships.
It gets increasingly difficult to care for your home as you become older. If you’re tired of balancing housework, yard work, and home maintenance, it’s time to downsize sooner rather than later. Many older individuals just do not need as much space as they formerly did. You may also be able to save money by downsizing. Residents in a senior living community can live independently for as long as they are physically able, or they can transition to different levels of care gradually.
