The Simon Foundation for Continence is dedicated to:
Bringing the topic of incontinence out into the open,
Removing the stigma surrounding incontinence,
And providing help and hope for people with incontinence, their families, and the health professionals who provide their care.
Incontinence affects millions of individuals worldwide. Estimates suggest that over 26 million adults in the US are affected by urinary incontinence - and countless more by fecal incontinence or a combination of both types. The importance of reporting incontinence to a healthcare professional that is knowledgeable and interested in treating incontinence cannot be overstated. A correct diagnosis for incontinence is extremely important for finding proper treatment and care and because incontinence may be an indicator of a more serious medical condition. Incontinence should not be ignored nor viewed as a normal consequence of childbirth or aging.
Within this website, we hope you will find the help and knowledge that will motivate you to take the steps that will lead to the solution that is right for you, and for your particular incontinence.
