Managing incontinence for your elderly family member can become expensive in terms of both actual money and the time that it can take. Finding ways to manage both in a way that continues to give your elderly family member the best care possible is not as difficult as it might first seem.
Look for Coupons for Products.
It’s a simple idea to look for coupons for the products that your elderly family member uses, but it can be tough to find the coupons when you need them. The Sunday newspaper is an excellent source for regular coupons, but there are others, too. Visit the manufacturer’s website and see if they offer savings for signing up for a newsletter. Look for a way to contact the manufacturer, too. Companies will often give you coupons simply because you ask for them.
Talk to Other Family Caregivers.
Joining a support group or meeting up with other caregivers can help you in many ways. One of the best ways this can help you when you’re dealing with incontinence issues is that you can swap solutions, coupons, and even products that maybe you’re not using but that someone else could use.
Contact Senior Agencies.
Sometimes senior agencies have donations of incontinence supplies that they share with senior citizens in the area. If you have a list of agencies in your area, it doesn’t hurt to call and ask them if they can help you obtain the incontinence products that you need.
Consider Hiring Home Care Providers.
Having home care providers available can be truly wonderful for family caregivers. It’s exhausting to be the only one helping your elderly family member manage her incontinence problems. This is especially the case if your senior is having trouble at night, too. Elder care providers can help make sure that you’re still able to sleep and yet be there when you can be for your aging adult.
Take it Easy on Yourself.
Many family caregivers try to do too much, too often. You have to take care of your own needs, as well. This is about making your life easier while still being able to take care of your elderly family member.
As you put some solid systems in place, you’ll find other ways to help save time and money in your unique situation.
