Zagaria MAE et al. – In seniors, urinary incontinence (UI) is not only a common condition, but also a disruption in terms of functionality, quality of life, and the potential to disable. It may adversely affect physical health, psychological well–being, social status, and the costs of health care. This condition may affect not only frail elderly individuals residing in nursing facilities, but also active seniors residing in the community and hospitalized geriatric patients as well. Furthermore, regardless of the setting, UI can affect individuals across the spectrum of cognitive function, from those with good function to those with dementia and other neurologically degenerative diseases.
