Continence Advisory Service

Urinary incontinence, faecal incontinence and constipation are prevalent conditions affecting people across their lifespan. According to the Continence Foundation, 1 in 4 adult Australians are affected by incontinence. In 2010, it was estimated 1.17 million Australians aged 65 years and over lived in the community with faecal incontinence. This form of incontinence was one of the three major reasons, (along with decreased mobility and dementia), for admittance to a residential aged care facility.

Sydney Community Services works with diverse communities to undertake continence management to sensitively plan and implement patient-centered care by:

  • Developing plans and strategies to manage clients’ conditions, incorporating elements of prevention and risk reduction;
  • Conducting timely evaluations and monitoring progress;
  • Supporting clients to establish SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound) goals;
  • Providing advocacy, education, and advice.
