One of the more common types of incontinence, of which there are many, is called functional incontinence. This is when a person recognizes they have to urinate, but can’t make it to the bathroom in time. This incontinence is usually due to limited mobility. The urine loss might be a little with a small amount of seepage into the pants or it might be large. This functional incontinence is not from loss of bladder control it is from inability to get to the bathroom in time. The variety of causes are from dementia, poor eyesight, poor mobility, poor dexterity, sometimes the adult refuses to toilet due to depression or anxiety or anger. There are conditions when a person does not have the availability of reaching a toilet due to the unavailability of a bathroom. Whatever the situation, incontinence stores have many incontinence products, including adult cloth diapers.
People with functional incontinence may not be able to communicate their needs, or think through their needs, or simply be without proper access to a bathroom. A person with Alzheimer’s may not be able to reason well enough to realize they need to go to the bathroom. Many of the conditions of this type of incontinence are associated with age while some are associated with physical ability, and the third is just plain fact there is no bathroom available to use.
Functional incontinence hits all ages and can be quite embarrassing without the proper incontinence supplies to control the issue of urinating in the clothing. Due to modern day creations of the large variety of pads, pull ups, diapers, briefs, and plastic pants, people suffering from functional incontinence can live a stress free life without the embarrassment of urinating on their clothing.
