Lynn Wilson, who co-founded The CareGiver Partnership in 2004, has been selected as a guest author for three issues of “Senior Industry Insider.” A monthly newsletter for professionals in the senior living industry, it’s published by RetirementHomes.com, an online guide to retirement living.
“As an experienced caregiver and provider of incontinence products and services, this publication was a natural fit,” says Wilson. “Because incontinence affects residents at all types of senior living and assisted living facilities, finding best practices for managing urinary and bowel incontinence is a concern for staff. It’s also an important topic in long-term care facilities, where incontinence supplies are the third highest cost area after food and laundry expenses.”
Wilson’s article provides information on incontinence types and tips, which staff in any care environment can share with residents so they can work together to choose products based on the types of incontinence they’re managing.
“We find some of our customers aren’t aware that certain types of incontinence are more common among a particular gender, or that there are products made specifically to fit a man’s or a woman’s anatomy,” says Wilson. “This article explains how specific products can make it easier to manage certain types of incontinence.”
Wilson’ first in the series, “Managing Incontinence in the Senior Living Setting,” along with the two articles to follow, will be archived in the RetirementHomes.com Senior Living Library.
