Urinary incontinence in the elderly

Urinary incontinence in an elderly person has an effect on the patient’s and his/her family’s quality of life as well as on health care costs. It increases the risk of falls and the need for long-term institutional care. The patient is often too embarrassed to seek appropriate help. Various treatment options that either cure or at least ease the situation are available to manage urinary incontinence in an elderly person.
