Changes in Elderly Behavior May Indicate Onset of a UTI

A Place for Mom, Inc. Makes the point that the most apparent symptom of onset of a urinary tract infection (UTI) in the elderly is a rather sudden change in behavior. Confusion, extreme irritability, incontinence, or not being able to do tasks the person could easily do a few days before could all be symptoms of a UTI. Caregivers need to be vigilant and aware that changes in elderly behavior may indicate onset of a UTI. A urine sample should be presented to a doctor or lab for testing.
