  • Description:
    Incontinence has about a 15 percent prevalence among elderly women. Some of the factors associated with incontinence are psychosocial implications of stigmatization, the decreased quality of life, and the economic considerations of nursing home costs. There are numerous, often misdiagnosed, reversible causes of incontinence, and many of the problems associated with aging may be alleviated if incontinence is treated symptomatically and controlled.
