Caring for someone with dementia: coping with incontinence

The Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading care and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. They produce information and advice sheets to support those affected by dementia. Incontinence can be upsetting and humiliating for the person with dementia and stressful for the carer. As this information sheet highlights, approaching the problem with understanding, matter-of-factness and humour can improve the situation for everyone concerned.
