Coming to terms with incontinence is sometimes a process. If despite all the evidence, your loved one seems to keep his head in the sand, its time to take action. These tips can help with dealing with incontinence denial.
Be direct about dealing with incontinence denial
Talking about incontinence can be embarrassing, so choose your words carefully. Remind your loved one that incontinence is a common medical condition affecting millions of men just like him. He should know that it is manageable, and often treatable, and need not prevent him from enjoying his usual activities.
Put yourself in his shoes
Incontinence may be a side effect of a larger issue. For example, is your loved one having pain with walking or balance issues? Is clothing easy to remove? Do a little detective work. These kinds of problems may discourage more regular toileting. Also, be sure the path to the toilet is clear to avoid risk for falls.
Arm yourself with information
Incontinence has many causes. Encourage your loved one to broach the subject with a healthcare provider. Changes to certain medications, weight management, smoking cessation and maintaining a healthy prostate can improve incontinence symptoms. If symptoms cannot be improved, hearing the diagnosis from a doctor may finally lead to acceptance.
