Support for bladder and bowel health issues, incontinence and toileting.
What is incontinence?
Incontinence is the term used to describe accidental or involuntary loss of urine (wee) from the bladder and faeces (poo) or flatus (wind) from the bowel.
1 in 4 Australians are affected by bladder and bowel health issues. This includes children and adults who experience incontinence and challenges with toileting.
Our Continence Management Services
At Therapy Focus we work closely with individuals, families, education staff and other health professionals to provide the best in continence care.
Our experienced continence clinicians help people understand what causes bladder and bowel health issues, and how they can be treated. After completing a comprehensive assessment of bladder and bowel function and toileting skills, these clinicians provide management strategies that support children and adults to achieve their continence goals.
Services can be provided at home, school and community settings, or you can choose to visit one of our office locations throughout Perth and in the South West. You can also access services online via teletherapy and regional visits can be arranged for families living in regional and remote areas of Western Australia.
