Because a lot can be done to maintain continence.

At the continence consultation of the Vienna Social Fund (FSW), for example, specially trained employees provide information unbureaucratically, free of charge and, if desired, anonymously. “There are so many ways to improve one’s situation or even cure incontinence. There is no need to be ashamed. We want to encourage those affected to seek help. If the way to the advice center is nevertheless too large a hurdle, we come however also gladly free of charge for consultation at home , so Claudia Ilgner, chief of the FSW Kontinenzberatung.

New: counseling is expanded
