Action point


Avoid clothing and remove obstacles in the environment and that can contribute to incontinence.

Not being able to find the bathroom and obstacles like furniture or clutter on the way to the bathroom can result in “accidents”. The same applies to clothing that is difficult to remove in time.

Visit our Incontinence Centre for more on managing this condition.
