There are many benefits of having a continence management service in a senior living community like Blue Ridge Assisted Living and Memory Care. Educational and behavioral changes increase the likelihood of individuals maintaining, minimizing, or reducing the severity of their incontinence issues. Residents deemed to be most at risk of developing incontinence are equipped with tools that give them more freedom and control, while others can address any reversible causes they might have. Those with chronic incontinence can also learn to properly manage their condition and receive the right support.
