Abstract

Drennan V et al (2013) Inclusion of dementia in local continence guidance. Nursing Times; 109: 27, 22-23 Evidence shows that people with dementia and their families and carers feel health professionals do not always adequately address needs surrounding continence.

This article examines continence guidance from a range of trusts across England to find out if they include specific guidance relating to dementia.

Information on continence for people with dementia living at home, and their carers, is often inadequate, so community nurses should review what is provided in their area
