Did you know it’s World Continence Week?
The annual health campaign is run by the International Continence Society (ICS) every year to raise awareness of incontinence related issues. And here at Arelle, we’re hugely supportive about every initiative to open up conversations on incontinence, while sharing our knowledge and solutions to improve the lives of those who experience the condition.
This year World Continence Week is taking place between 15 – 21 June 2020. Each day is packed with all kinds of information about continence and bladder pain issues. There is a huge variety of topics in the form of scientific and other articles, videos, visuals, infographics, blogs, podcasts, testimonials and more. Just click through this link to find out more.
It’s been interesting and refreshing to see online how organisations and charities have been highlighting the impact urinary incontinence can have on lives, encouraging those living with incontinence to seek help so they no longer have to suffer in silence.
Here are some of the most useful resources, produced by The Urology Foundation, which you can view or download:
- Incontinence Myths and Facts
- Causes of Incontinence
- Managing Incontinence
- Incontinence Lifestyle Tips
WCW2020 is also an opportunity to share The Urology Foundation’s Need to Pee card.
The wallet-sized card is designed to help those living with urinary incontinence to gain quick access to a toilet when the urge comes. The card can help explain the circumstance and quickly avoid any embarrassing situation.
Should you want one, The Urology Foundation asks for a nominal donation of £2 to cover the cost of postage and package. You can do this through their donate page and in the ‘I am donating because’ section let them know that you would like a Need to Pee card.
