What is Incontinence Care
Incontinence care is when an individual has a difficult time controlling their bladder or bowel functions. As you age the muscles and nerves that assist with bladder control weaken.
Types of Incontinence Care Include:
Stress incontinence occurs when pressure is put on your bladder from sneezing, coughing, laughing, exercising, or lifting heavy objects causing your bladder to leak.
Urge incontinence, also referred to as overactive bladder is the sudden feeling of having to go to the bathroom. Sometimes urge incontinence can be triggered by touching water, or from just hearing the sound of running water.
Mixed incontinence is the combination of stress incontinence and urge incontinence.
Overflow incontinence occurs when you can't empty your bladder completely and there is leakage because your bladder too full.
Functional incontinence is from a medical condition that keeps you from going to the bathroom when you need to go. A medical condition like arthritis would be an example.
