A Continence Assessment by a Specialist Nurse is a comprehensive evaluation of bladder and bowel function to determine the problems related to incontinence. It is an essential tool in promoting independence with your continence needs, including use of the most suitable products for you to have funded in your NDIS plan.
The assistive technology (continence products) used to manage your continence issues will make the difference in moving towards being as independent as possible. Incontinence should not stop you from being able to do the things you love! Our team can help you choose the most suitable continence products to suit your needs
Toilet Training Support
Our team is able to provide recommendations, advice and ongoing support for children who have not yet toilet trained or have issues with toilet refusal, sensory sensitivities, stool withholding, constipation, day wetting (wee accidents in the daytime) and faecal incontinence or soiling (poo accidents)
We can provide advice and recommendations for catheter users, both intermittent and indwelling, to find the most suitable catheter equipment for your needs. Your NDIS plan should include adequate funding for the most appropriate catheter for your purposes!
Bedwetting is also known as Enuresis or Night Urinary Incontinence. Children who are still wetting the bed after the age of 5 years can seek treatment for their night wetting. Our team can provide guidance about possible treatment options as well as the most appropriate assistive technology products to help contain the wetting and work towards to achievement of night dryness for your child
Support for Neurodiverse Children (ASD, ADHD)
Many children have NDIS funding due to their neurodiversity and this makes them a higher risk of having bladder and bowel problems including day and night wetting, constipation, soiling, toilet refusal and incontinence. Our team can help these children to become toilet trained, continent and dry at night
