Do you or a loved one struggle with incontinence, the involuntary excretion of urine or bowel movements, and are seeking lasting incontinence care?
There are four kinds of incontinence that plague many seniors today, including stress incontinence, urge incontinence, overflow incontinence, and functional incontinence. Begin to understand them below so you can see why A-1 Home Care’s expert caregivers are the solution for struggling seniors in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas:
Stress Incontinence— occurs when urine or bowels leak during exercise, sneezing, laughing, coughing, heavy lifting, or other body movements that place even momentary pressure on the bladder or rectum.
Urge Incontinence— occurs when urine or bowels can’t be held in long enough to get to a toilet, and is further evidenced by “having to go” more than seven times during the day or more than twice during the night.
Overflow Incontinence— occurs in patients who cannot fully empty their bladders, causing a tiny bit of urine to leak from the bladder even when they aren’t going to the restroom. This can be manifested as frequent urination and/or a constant dribbling of urine in patients.
Functional Incontinence— occurs not because of a lack of bladder or rectum control, but because of other functional deficiencies in patients bodies. These include not being able to get to the restroom in time because of problems like arthritis, which is one of many examples of disorders that can impair a quick escape to the toilet.
