Incontinence is a problem that mostly affects the elderly and may be one of the first signs of a serious disease. The uncontrollable loss of control of one’s bladder or bowel can have a negative influence on one’s quality of life and cause great humiliation. It will harm their relationships, sexuality, and mental health. Nonetheless, incontinence can be treated and corrected most of the time. At Rittenhouse Village At Valparaiso, our on-site, 24-hour medical team is comprised of committed healthcare specialists who will devise an ideal continence management strategy to assist your loved one in living a dignified and joyful life.

Benefits of Having Continence Management in Your Senior Living Community
A well-balanced diet is very crucial for continence management. For example, excessive alcohol and caffeine usage might increase urine output. Individuals suffering from incontinence should avoid drinking a lot of coffee or tea since it will only make their symptoms worse. If that is not an option, limit yourself to one drink each day.
Constipation is another physical ailment that can induce urine incontinence. When hard fecal matter becomes lodged in the rectum, its enlarged bulk presses against the bladder, potentially causing leakage. As a result, constipation must be prioritized in a continence care plan. This may be accomplished by eating five servings of veggies and two servings of fruits every day. Fish, lean meat, and whole grains are other foods that can help with gut health. We also ensure that our residences consume plenty of fluids so that they are properly hydrated.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
When incontinence has a negative influence on your quality of life and the quality of life of your family caregiver, you should consider moving into a senior living community. You will be able to live your best life and do the things you like without having to worry about your security, safety, or health.
