Incontinence happens when you can’t control your bladder or bowel movements.
Continence supports are products you use every day to manage your incontinence, such as pads or bed protectors. Continence supports could include support from someone to help you manage your continence.
The Australian health system may provide continence supports. We can only fund these supports if they are related to your disability.
We may fund continence supports if you have occasional or regular incontinence because of your disability. For children, we may be able to fund continence supports if it relates to your child’s disability or developmental delay.
We can also fund a professional to train someone to help you with your continence supports. We only fund these supports if you can’t manage your continence because of your disability.
