MS continence assessment

MS continence assessmentMS continence assessment is all about looking into what products, treatments and other strategies will help you take control of your bowel and bladder issues.

This assessment comes under the NDIS ‘Activities of daily living’ support cluster. Our specialist continence facilities are based in our Blackburn VIC and Lidcombe NSW offices.

Are you continence ready for NDIS?

The NDIS is designed to help people with disability participate in activities of daily living – and one category of support is consumables, which assists you to purchase your continence equipment.

It’s important when considering your plan to know your continence needs. If you’ve never had a continence assessment, here are some questions to ask yourself ...

  • Has your bladder function changed for the worse?

  • Are you confident to participate in social activities?

  • Do you regularly experience leakage of urine or uncontrollable loss of stool or gas from the bowel?

  • Are you constantly constipated?

  • Do you suffer from urinary tract infections?

  • Are you happy with the equipment you use to maintain continence? Is it easy to use and care for?

  • Does your catheter regularly block?

  • Is your skin free of excoriation?

If you experience any of the above issues, a Continence Nurse Advisor can assess you and advise you of the products that would best suit your needs.

To discuss your situation, contact MS Connect on 1800 042 138 and ask to speak with our MS Continence Advisor.
