Incontinence and dementia

Difficulties with using the toilet, accidents and incontinence can all be problems for people with dementia, particularly as the condition progresses.

These problems can be upsetting for the person and for those around them. However, incontinence is not an inevitable consequence of dementia and support is available.

If you experience any form of incontinence, it is very important that you go to your GP for advice as soon as possible, as there may be a cure or an effective way to manage your problem and improve your quality of life.
