The critically ill or elderly are highly prone to have an established urinary or fecal incontinence but these problems can be easily managed and prevented with proper management. An individual who experiences loss of bowel or bladder control is going to feel isolated, depressed, and embarrassed, which can lead to social deterioration and mental health issues and if continued to be left untreated, it may also lead to social isolation or even worse, develop a memory-related disorder. That is why with an adequate understanding of continence management, a care provider can help prevent transient incontinence from being a routine pattern in an individual’s life.
