Our Vision: Helping People Deal with Incontinence in Positive, Life-changing Ways
Incontinence.co.uk is committed to compiling a comprehensive resource of information relating to every aspect of incontinence. We are here to provide you with credible, informationto help provide you with a greater understanding of incontinence.
Incontinence.co.uk has three objectives:
- To be a leading authority on incontinence information for people in the UK,
- To provide information on a wide range of treatment options, and
- To be a resource of products and services you can trust.
Incontinence.co.uk believes that knowledge can help people regain their quality of life after a diagnosis of incontinence or bladder weakness. With this in mind, we provide comprehensive, information on treatment options which is written in easy-to-understand language. Our information is divided into subjects which are further organized into clear headings outlining necessary information.
In our Incontinence Subjects pages listed on the right, you will find information about every type of incontinence, along with links to other resources. Simply click on a link to display a single page that can be printed out on a variety of topics: incontinence in women, incontinence in men, specific types, treatment options, and products that can help.
Incontinence affects as many as one in four women and one in ten men at some point in their lifetimes. Incontinence.co.uk provides information on treatments that can reduce or even cure episodes of incontinence. These can be simple modifications to one’s lifestyle, physical therapy, prescription medications that target incontinence, or surgeries to address stress incontinence.
We have found that there is no reason for incontinence to slow down a person with an active lifestyle. Armed with information, people are better able to make good choices about products that will help overcome it, including absorbent pads, mattress covers and sheets, washable wear, and hygiene products.
Incontinence.co.uk firmly believes that there is no reason to feel ashamed or embarrassed by incontinence, and therefore seek to demystify it. If you or a loved one is facing incontinence, we encourage you to talk to a physician about it in order to prevent it from taking over your life. Incontinence is managable!
