Adult Incontinence Care

Anyone can develop incontinence — the loss of bladder or bowel control causing leakage — although certain groups are at higher risk. But it’s a myth that incontinence is an expected part of growing older. Incontinence isn’t normal; it reflects an underlying problem. Incontinence is a symptom, not a disease.  What is true is that the odds of needing adult incontinence care increase with age. There are several reasons for this:

  • With aging, there is more wear-and-tear on the muscles and other tissues involved with urination and elimination, causing them to weaken and lessening their control.
