World Continence Day on 30.6. informs and shows options for action
Vienna (OTS) – If the urge to urinate or defecate can no longer be controlled, this often leads to physical and psychological problems for those affected.
Although about 1 million Austrians suffer from it, incontinence is considered a taboo subject in our society. This is precisely where World Continence Day, which takes place every year on June 30, comes in: It aims to inform, remove taboos and raise awareness of options for action. 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.
