Up to 35% of the total population over the age of 60 years is estimated to be incontinent, with women twice as likely as men to experience incontinence. One in three women over the age of 60 years are estimated to have bladder control problems. Of the nearly 25 million American men and women that are affected by urinary incontinence, many believe it’s a normal condition that comes with aging. However, urinary incontinence – which is unintentional or uncontrolled urine leakage – is treatable, but should also be considered a symptom of an underlying bladder problem. That’s why experts at Northwest Community Healthcare (NCH) are offering a free screening to evaluate and educate individuals who are suffering with this distressing condition.
NCH’s free Urinary Incontinence Screening will be held on Thursday, April 19, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. as well as Saturday, April 21, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Northwest Community Hospital campus in Arlington Heights. At the screenings, certified continence nurses will meet privately with each attendee to review urinary symptoms, address concerns, and discuss healthy bladder habits and non-surgical treatment options. Attendees will be equipped with knowledge and resources to make informed decisions for relieving their urinary problems.
The signs of a urinary incontinence problem are the urge to rush to the bathroom; urine leakage when coughing, laughing, sneezing or other activity; frequent bladder infections; or any other issues related to urination.
To schedule a free 30-minute private screening with an NCH certified continence nurse, call 847.618.4YOU (4968), or visit www.nch.org. Registration is required and space is limited, so sign up early. The screening is a consultation only, and does not include a physical examination, or blood and urine tests.CLEAR SKIES?  Weather Data for Friday, April 13th, 2012
