Why Are Elderly Patients Confused When They Have A Uti?

The reason for the perplexity in cases of urinary tract infections in our senior population appears to be directly related to the fact that they are, after all, an infection. Any illness will put a strain on the immune system, and our senior citizens will often be unwell when they have one.

This is due to the fact that, as you age, your immune response changes – this is a natural part of the aging process. An UTI puts stress on the body, says Dr. Pearson, and any form of stress, whether physical or mental, can cause an older adult to feel disoriented and disoriented.
