Get your continence back
Does bladder leakage stop you doing the things you love: playing with your children or grandchildren, socialising with friends or exercising?
Bladder leakage – no matter how light – is not normal and most cases can be cured or better managed. So get your confidence back by speaking with one of our friendly continence nurse advisors on the free National Continence Helpline 1800 33 00 66.
More than 4.8 million Australians experience bladder or bowel control problems. The Continence Foundation of Australia's vision is to have a community free of the stigma of incontinence. We provide information on funding, referral and products. We also offer free resources for individuals, carers and professionals to help treat bladder and bowel control problems. Phone a nurse on 1800 33 00 66 for free advice.
It's Carers Week 2016. The Continence Foundation supports and acknowledges the contribution that Australia's 2.8 million at-home carers make to our society.
Research has been telling us for years that women with osteoporosis are at greater risk of incontinence. We also know that incontinence, particularly urge incontinence, increases a person’s risk of falling over. This osteoarthritis-incontinence double whammy puts people – particularly older women - at a greater risk of bone fractures compared to the rest of the population.
