Why are we still doing so badly in treating incontinence?


Continence care for dementia patients seems to be especially bad, and carers are often told they must buy the products necessary, which is a complete outrage. If you are living on a resticted income anyway and spend up to £10 per pack on incontinence pads using 3-4 packs each week, is this fair or right? We have in this as in so many other areas, a very long way to go. Is it me, or do we seem to be going backwards in respect of generally good levels of care?
