So, I have presented you with a lot of data about Overactive Bladder Disorder or OAB. From drug therapies to differing bladder issues, there was a lot of information that I hope you can use when trying to show your clients that With Age Comes Respect.
Simply by realizing that OAB is exceedingly common in both aging males and females does not mean that it is really a normal consequence of aging. Au contraire, as was presented over the past few days, we learned that OAB is likely an adverse effect of something else bothering your client. The stress of OAB simply adds to that stress and around-and-around we go.
All we want as elderly caregivers is to present our clients with the quality of life that they want, they deserve and that, in many cases, they crave. If they do have symptoms of OAB, we can at least learn everything we can to help them and show them that they may have to adopt a new standard in order to regain quality of life.
By helping your clients to effectively manage their OAB, after they have received an accurate diagnosis, you can do all you can to then ensure that they have been prescribed the best pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic therapies that there currently are. Do that and you will be known as the best in the elderly caregiving world!
