Incontinence is the involuntary loss of bladder and/or bowel control. Living with incontinence can be both challenging and exhausting. While the symptoms of this disorder are often not visible, incontinence can considerably impact a person’s quality of life and cause embarrassment that prevents them from seeking help.
