Sometimes the simple fact of not being able to get around due to physical injury, disease or age makes it difficult to react in time to signals from the bladder or bowel.
Conditions like Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclorosis, Cerebral Plasy and degenrative conditions can make the everyday task of getting to the toilet in time a challenge.
Even conditions like arthristis can make it extremely diffiult to undo fastenings and remove clothing in time to use the toilet.
However, once this has been identified, a bit of planning can make all the difference. Paying attention to a routine and anticipating when the bladder needs to be emptied can help to allow enough time and improve success.
