Adult Incontinence Explained

Incontinence is basically the loss of voiding control, most commonly when it comes to urine. Suffers may lose complete control of voiding urine from the bladder or fecal matter from the bowel. It is also described as the involuntary emptying of the bladder.

Urinary incontinence is actually quite common among people of all ages and geriatric incontinence specifically refers to senior members suffering from the condition. There are multiple types of incontinence that will affect the best course of management for each individual patient.

Even though this condition can be quite frustrating at first, especially when your spouse or parent is affected, with the proper adult incontinence supplies your loved one’s freedom and mobility doesn’t have to be limited. We will make sure they receive the best items suited for their individual needs to keep them comfortable, and clean.

There are various types of urinary incontinence.

Diurnal Incontinence or diurnal wetting is pediatric incontinence that occurs during the daytime or during waking hours.

Enuresis, commonly referred to as ‘bedwetting’ occurs when pediatric incontinence happens during the night. You may hear the term nocturnal enuresis, as voiding of the bladder occurs in sleep during nocturnal hours.

Primary Enuresis is when a child has good bladder control during the day but has involuntary voiding during the night.

Secondary Enuresis occurs after a child has been able to remain dry for a period of six months, then suddenly suffers from symptoms.
