Abstract

Urinary incontinence (UI) is common in individuals with dementia as the disease progresses. The primary reasons for incontinence are often not related to pathology in the urinary system but are frequently attributed to losses associated with dementia. This article discusses the scope of the problem of UI in individuals with dementia, possible causes, and assessment methods, as well as interventions that can achieve improved outcomes.
