Abstract

Urinary incontinence is one of the most common and distressing of the conditions experienced by older people. It is not just associated with physical and cognitive frailty but also features significantly in the fit community living population. Urinary incontinence is known to be hidden and under-reported. Yet the needs of older people across the globe in relation to urinary incontinence will increase with the changing demography.
