Continence Care

by | 26 Oct, 2016 | Social Care

Incontinence has a profound effect on the quality of life of patients, carers, and family. Incontinence is not a natural consequence of growing older, or giving birth, and in most cases can be treated or managed effectively to reduce or remove the impact on social activity, health and wellbeing.

Services provided to older people should pay particular attention to continence problems, as people suffering from urinary incontinence have a greater risk of infections (particularly UTIs), increased risk of admission, and take longer to discharge from hospital – increasing lengths of stay. The All Party Parliamentary Group for Continence Care report outlines the costs and benefits of gold standard treatment.

Bladder and Bowel Foundation offers free confidential advice through their helpline manned by experienced continence advisors.
