This week is World Continence Week.
As we all know, incontinence can affect anyone at any age. It can be extremely debilitating and lead to anxiety issues with sufferers not wishing to go out for fear of experiencing a leak.
It is still quite a taboo subject, but more and more people and organisations are talking about the problems associated with incontinence.
World Continence Week (WCW) is an annual initiative designed and managed by WFIPP, and approval by the International Continence Society (ICS) and the European Association of Urology (EAU). It is a global initiative to raise awareness of all forms of incontinence, pelvic pain and other debilitating conditions which impact greatly on the lives of patients and carers.
WCW provides many useful resources that may help improve the day to day lives of those who suffer from incontinence.
Of course, here at Lyla, we are doing our utmost to make the lives of those who suffer that much better.
