Ensuring Quality Bowel and Bladder Care: A Guide for NDIS Providers

For individuals with disabilities, getting proper bowel and bladder care is essential for their overall well-being and quality of life. For all the disability service providers, it’s essential to conduct thorough continence assessments to ensure the best care for participants. Bharosa Community Services understands the significance of this care and takes pride in assisting our participants with qualified support workers who specialise in quality bowel and bladder care.

What is Continence Assessment?

Continence assessment involves evaluating an individual’s ability to control their bladder and bowels. This assessment helps in understanding the participant’s needs, challenges, and the level of support required for proper management.

Key Considerations for Continence Assessment

  • Individualised Assessment: Each participant has unique needs. Conduct a personalised assessment to understand their specific challenges, medical history, medications, and any existing continence-related issues.
  • Functional Assessment: Evaluate the participant’s physical abilities, mobility, and cognitive functions that may affect their continence. This includes assessing their ability to access toileting facilities independently.
  • Communication and Consent: Establish effective communication to understand the participant’s preferences, concerns, and any discomfort they might be experiencing. Always seek informed consent before implementing any continence care plan.
  • Bowel and Bladder Care Routine: Develop a routine that aligns with the participant’s lifestyle, including regular toileting schedules, fluid intake, dietary considerations, and exercises that promote continence.
  • Support and Education: Provide comprehensive education and support to the participant and their caregivers or family members. This includes training on proper toileting techniques, hygiene practices, and recognizing signs of potential issues.
