Starting a Conversation About Incontinence
No one wants to be incontinent and this may be one of the most difficult discussions you have with a loved one.
You may be the one who must start the conversation. It is important to be patient, sympathetic and informed.
At first your loved one may deny being incontinent and try to hide the fact. Stress the importance of honesty and willingness to seek help. You need to be supportive of the loved one's feelings and express your willingness to help.
