UTIs in Older Adults -- Don't be Confused

Publish Date: 10/17/2016

Daughter with older motherYou were visiting your mom and she seemed very confused and disoriented. She claimed the retirement home had moved her to a different apartment and she didn’t know why. Fortunately, you knew the reason for her confusion was not to be ignored because you had seen this out-of-sorts behavior before.  Your mom hadn’t been moved to a new apartment, but she probably had another urinary tract infection.
