UTI’s

Having a urine infection can be a common problem when you are older. There may be underlying health problems that are responsible. Urine infections are usually easily treated with a course of a medicine called an antibiotic. Once cleared with treatment, in most cases there are no long-term problems following a urine infection. There are some simple steps you can take to help prevent a urine infection.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a type of infection that are common among older people. Women are more commonly affected by them than men. If a person with a memory impairment or dementia has a urinary tract infection, this can cause sudden and severe confusion known as 'delirium'.
