Home / Resources & Guidance / Continence Guidance for Registered Managers of Care Homes

The main focus of this document is intended to guide Registered Managers of care homes, to guidance and support materials to aid continence care in care homes, and set out how their local system could be funded, and/or how free continence products can be acquired, with an appendix to sign-post to additional information and resources relating to temporary or treatable incontinence.

There is often much confusion locally as to how continence products are provided, or what funding is available to care homes. Boundaries and different trusts/CCGs operate different processes, which can complicate the application and provision of products, leaving many care homes to procure for themselves, without reimbursement.
