Incontinence can happen at any age, but older adults are more likely to experience it than younger individuals. While incontinence is a common part of ageing, this does not mean it’s inevitable or that there’s nothing you can do about it. There are many treatments available and a large number of people, even older people, with incontinence can find relief.

Incontinence in ageing adults can be caused by several different factors. These may be simple things such as not drinking enough water. Or they may be more severe issues such as an inflamed bladder wall. Diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis can cause incontinence, as can prostate problems in men. Even substances like caffeine and certain medications can be triggers.

Types of Incontinence

Incontinence related to ageing may take several different forms. Types of incontinence can include:

  • Urge incontinence – sudden, urgent needs to urinate that result in the person not getting to the bathroom in time
  • Stress incontinence – pressure on the bladder causes leakage when the person sneezes, laughs, or coughs
  • Overflow incontinence – the bladder never empties completely; there is often a constant urge to urinate but an inability to empty the bladder properly, sometimes because of an obstruction in the urinary tract
  • Functional incontinence – accidents caused by other disabilities, such as difficulty with zippers or with walking (and thus making it to the toilet in time)
  • Mixed incontinence – a combination of more than one type of incontinence at the same time

Management and Treatment

There are many things older individuals can try that may improve or cure their incontinence. Scheduling trips to the bathroom is one way to help prevent accidents. Double voiding can also be effective: the individual urinates, waits a few minutes, then urinates again; this trains them to empty the bladder more fully. Kegel exercises can be effective at any age. If these measures fail, there are also medications and surgical procedures available that can help.
