Incontinence Community

Incontinence Home

Welcome to our Incontinence Community! Whether a temporary symptom or a permanent condition, incontinence can sometimes be a challenge. But with the right tools and care, living with incontinence can be more comfortable.

We’re here for you – from your first experience with incontinence, through when you’re empowered and in control of it – not the other way around. Start with our resources below to familiarize yourself with incontinence, its causes and treatments, and how to live well with incontinence.

Here you’ll find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about living with incontinence. Our resources are meant to educate and empower you to take control over your experience with incontinence, and to live better. Feel free to comment on any of the articles with questions you may have, and we will do our best to respond to them in a timely manner.

Shield HealthCare offers monthly educational webinars on a variety of topics. Once these webinars conclude, they are added to our on-demand archive. Check out our incontinence webinars and videos to learn more about living well with incontinence, skin issues caused by incontinence, tips for managing fecal incontinence and much more.
