People with dementia can experience difficulties with using the toilet. Accidents and incontinence can often cause problems. This can be upsetting for the person and those around them. It is a difficult and sensitive subject to talk about. Every Doctor’s surgery should have an Incontinence Nurse specialist and there are pads and aids available for free.
