“If you live in a building that has beautiful chandeliers and a beautiful dining room, but you’re scared to go out because … you might soil your clothing … and soil the chair you’re sitting on, you’re not going to go have the nice meal in the dining room with your friends or take part in any social activities. … [Urinary incontinence is] one of the most common things going on in a senior living community, but it’s one of the least common things that’s spoken about.”
