Pain, Constipation, Incontinence: Its Effects on Health, Daily Function and Behaviours – Sponsored by All Seniors Care

November 3rd 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm



Physical conditions such as constipation and incontinence can significantly affect a person’s quality of life because of the pain and discomfort that it brings alongside the health consequences if not treated. These can also have a negative emotional impact on the person and their care partners. Dr. Gibson will discuss the causes, assessment tools, treatment options and ways to support someone who has these physical conditions. He will also explore how these conditions can cause behaviour changes and suggest supportive strategies.
