Incontinence is NOT a part of the normal aging process
Individuals wait an average of six years to seek help

Etobicoke's Home Instead Senior Care CAREGivers can make a difference by implementing the "Gentle Reminder Program". By utilizing this series of CAREGiver and client reminders, simple lifestyle changes and education on bladder health, clients can reduce and even eliminate embarrassing bladder control problems, leakage and odors. They become more confident and more independent.

For clients with lingering incontinence issues, our Client Care Manager can help recommend products made from better materials, to reduce the overall cost and improve the quality of care.

Incontinence can be managed with the proper guidance and education.  It no longer needs to be the reason that so many older adults stop participating in the activities they love and become isolated in their homes, or are forced into a nursing facility.
