Incontinence of faeces: the final frontier?


Posted on March 1st, by editor in Journal of Dementia Care. No Comments

All dementia care practitioners have to cope with episodes of faecal incontinence. If we are to give the best possible care, Deirdre Jenkins argues, we must remember and face our natural feelings of revulsion, rather than suppress them. On page 29 Tracy Packer adds information on some important aspects of practical care, thoughts on the causes of seemingly odd behaviour and emotional issues from the point of view of the person with dementia.
