2:20 -5:20 pm Providing Incontinence Care for Your Residents
In this 3- hour course, instructor(s) will review the different types of incontinence and how to provide proper care for those residents suffering from incontinence issues.
People of all ages can suffer from incontinence, but the majority of those who suffer from this condition is over the age of sixty. Incontinence affects both men and women, but the underlying causes are quite different. It is also much more commonly found in women than it is in men. This is because childbirth affects the muscles that control urination and defecation.
