New study highlights the scale of continence problems among people with dementia

GrantThe study by researchers Robert Grant and Vari Drennan, from the Faculty, is the largest study of its kind. It was carried out in collaboration with Professor Steve Iliffe and colleagues from the Research Department of Primary Care and Population Health at University College London. Their findings show that people suffering with dementia are much more likely to acquire incontinence than those without dementia

Robert Grant commented: “Incontinence is a common problem for people living with dementia in the community. They need good quality services, including advice and support for carers managing incontinence.”
