While incontinence isn't something people take lightly, for most, once an adjustment is made and people have learned how to manage the situation, life goes on pretty much as usual. Enter dementia, though, and that changes. People who live with dementia gradually lose their ability to make judgments. They also have little short-term memory so their ability to change incontinence wear, or even understanding the purpose of incontinence products, disappears. That leaves caregivers with the challenge of trying to keep both the person and the household free of urine and in later cases, feces. Often, because the person with dementia doesn't understand what is going on, they will fight the caregiver which of course makes it all the harder.
