Whilst continence issues are quite common, assisting those who are facing them is very personal. Our carers are here to help.
For those facing physical challenges in their lives, continence issues can, and do, arise. Knowing how to handle these situations is essential to the physical, emotional and mental health of the person involved as well as the hygiene of the surrounding environment. Having continence care from dedicated professionals who know what they are doing will make a difference.
Essentially, continence care is related to bodily functions. Continence care can be essential to the health, hygiene and safety of the individual.To an individual the loss of continence can be hard to deal with and carers are taught to offer support that can make a real difference to the lives of those they assist. Every case of continence care is slightly different and as there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution, we meet with everyone to identify what is right for them and put a care plan in place to support their needs.
Because a loss of continence can sometimes be preventable it is important that we understand how to manage continence issues. Sometimes, a change in how the continence support is scheduled and handled can help someone to achieve a level of continence that they thought wasn’t possible. Also, it is not always inevitable that a loss of continence will continue, as with support we may be able to make their lives much more comfortable.This support also helps to avoid the natural embarrassment which comes with continence issues.
At Starcare, carers understand that whilst continence issues are quite common, assisting those who are facing them is very personal. Our staff are trained to provide top quality care to those needing help with toileting, catheter care, changing pads, stoma care, skin care and more. We always treat each person needing this type of care with dignity and respect, making sure we maintain as high a
quality of life as possible.
