Action point


When caring for an elderly person with incontinence, make it easy for them to find and use the toilet.

Clear the path to the bathroom by moving furniture. Keep the bathroom door open so that the toilet is visible.

Make the bathroom stand out!

For example, place coloured rugs on the bathroom floor, install a brightly coloured toilet lid cover, or put a big, noticeable sign on the bathroom door.

Visit our Incontinence Centre for more on managing this condition.
