Just for your Information

If you have a parent or grandparent who may seem to be forgetful or just plain not making any sense, here's something to think about.

Most importantly, Treinkman says that caregivers can’t be too careful when they notice a change in behavior in an older adult, no matter how subtle. “Falls, confusion, new onset of incontinence in someone who had been getting to the bathroom, decrease in appetite,” she says, “any of these can be a sign of a urinary tract infection…for a caregiver, it really requires a detective-like index of suspicion.”

Hhmmmmm, I see.


  1. I am praying too!

    My grandma had one about 4 years ago - with some of these "clues". But we didn't know it until it got really bad.

    We had a rough few months when it all happened but she's doing MUCH better now.

    I know the same can happen with your situation because HE is in control!
