What is Incontinence?

Incontinence is a term that describes any accident or involuntary loss of urine from the bladder, or bowel motion, faeces or wind from the bowel.

Incontinence is not just a problem for the elderly and should not be considered an inevitable consequence of the ageing process. It should not be considered normal and it can often be a sign of other health problems.

Sometimes incontinence can be cured and other times it can be managed with the right advice or treatment.

Incontinence is a common condition that ranges in severity from just a small leak to complete loss of bladder or bowel control.
