Signs and Symptoms of a Urinary Tract Infection in Elderly Adults


Although it’s not uncommon to get a urinary tract infection (UTI), they can be quite harmful and dangerous for those aged 65-and-above. Complications that are possible when a senior gets a UTI include bloodstream infections (sepsis) and irreversible kidney damage. Many aging in place seniors who are the recipients of in-home care also have dementia, making it hard on a caregiver to determine if they have a UTI in the first place.
