Q: I’ve heard if I place my loved one in a facility while
they are still continent they will become incontinent immediately?
individuals become incontinent at times as their particular disease progresses,
admitting to a skilled nursing facility does not automatically equal
incontinence.Skilled nursing facility
have programs such as the bowel and bladder program to help facilitate
continence and maintain your loved ones independence as long as possible.The bowel and bladder program is a study of
your loved ones daily schedule.This
allows staff to accommodate and assist at the appropriate times to ensure
continence remains as long as physically possible.
