Continence Resource Centre

The Continence Resource Centre is a state-wide continence information and advisory service located at the Independent Living Centre (ILC).

There are many different causes of incontinence, and much can be done to improve or cure incontinence problems.

Continence Resource Centre services

The Centre is staffed by registered nurses and continence nurse advisors. We provide information and advice on bladder and bowel problems. Our services include:

  • information and advice on continence management and services
  • a product display including toileting equipment and adaptive clothing
  • fact sheets, brochures, videos, CDs and books
  • health promotion activities
  • education sessions and seminars.

We also promote activities such as Continence Awareness Week in August each year.

Information and services are free and available to all community members, including people with disabilities, carers, their families and health professionals. Equipment and products to help with continence can be seen in the catalogue.

The centre is affiliated with the Continence Foundation of Australia which provides information, research, project support and literature for distribution in the community.
