Managing Incontinence

There are several behavioral techniques that can enhance continence. These include bowel and bladder training, relaxation techniques, biofeedback and Kegel exercise. Kegel exercises are performed by tightening the pelvic floor muscles in a series of repetitions. These should be performed 30-80 times daily over a course of eight weeks.

There are also interventional strategies for incontinence if behavioral techniques cannot be performed. These include surgical interventions, pelvic muscle rehabilitation, pharmacological therapies and the use of disposable products. One surgical procedure performed in many cases is called a sling procedure. The surgeon will reposition the bladder into the correct anatomical position to enable the bladder to collect and empty urine properly. Bulking treatments use materials such as collagen to thicken the sphincters that control urine flow.

A number of different products may be used to help those living with incontinence to remain comfortable and dry. The selection of an incontinent product should correlate with the type of incontinence. The smallest/minimal product should be used to support and encourage continence and promote an individual's dignity and confidence. Some product options are bladder control pads, small liners and undergarments, pant liners and protective underwear and disposable briefs. Brief sizing is critical – the better the fit, the more comfortable the wearer and the better the absorption.

Caring for Others - Helpful Tips

It is estimated that 50 million* caregivers each year are providing care to an adult family member or friend. Whether you are new Caregiver or an experienced Caregiver, helping to manage incontinence may seem overwhelming. Here are a few helpful hints in managing incontinence for a friend or loved one.

Discuss Incontinence with Healthcare Provider

Incontinence is a common condition and one that should be discussed with a Healthcare Provider. The Healthcare Provider will most likely discuss symptoms, possibly order more tests or refer them to a Specialist. After a diagnosis is made, treatment options will probably be provided and discussed. These treatment options may include Kegel exercises, diet changes, medications, bladder retraining, environmental changes, surgery or absorbent products.

Incontinence: Make a Few Changes Around the House

  • Having difficulty getting out of a chair/bed may put pressure on the bladder. Provide sturdy arms or rails to help the person get out of the chair/bed without straining. Lift chairs are also available to help standing with little effort.
  • Create a clear path to the bathroom. Remove any clutter, furniture or rugs that may be an obstacle.
  • There should also be proper lighting with night lights or glow-in-the-dark tape to light the way to the bathroom at night.

Keep a Schedule

  • Keep a written record for trips to the bathroom. Write down each time that the individual goes to the bathroom and the amount they urinated (small, medium or large amount). This will enable the individual to develop a pattern and be able to go to the bathroom according to their schedule needs. You will also now have a “journal” to show the individual's Health Care Provider.
  • A good start is to make a trip to the toilet every 2 hours or upon rising in the morning, before meals or an activity. Over a few weeks, gradually increase the time between bathroom trips. Be sure to give the person enough time to completely empty the bladder.
  • If there is an accident, remove wet clothes and wash immediately, or if you cannot wash the clothing place the clothing in a sealed bag. These actions will help to reduce odor.
