Continence Care

Safe and effective continence assessment and care is an integral part of helping people maintain their independence. It’s important to remember that you’re not alone. Over 5 million Australians are affected by incontinence, affecting both men and women of all ages and backgrounds.

Understanding Incontinence

Incontinence is the term used to describe the loss of control of your bladder or bowel, or both. Being aware of bodily sensations such as feelings of having a full bladder, or memory of how, when and where to respond is one of the first ways to regain control. Many people feel too embarrassed to discuss incontinence, but it’s important to know that you’re not alone and that it can be managed, treated and in many cases cured.

Basic bladder and bowel health

  • Drink 1.5 to 2 litres of water a day
  • Eat a fibre-rich diet
  • Exercise daily
  • Include pelvic floor exercises
  • Establish a regular bowel-emptying routine
  • Get the nursing and homecare support you need

Keeping your bladder and bowel as healthy as possible is the best way to avoid accidents.
