The survey produced some interesting results as detailed below:
- 64% of participants (seniors) find assisted living preferential to receiving care from family or friends.
- 46% of participants voiced concerns of becoming a burden to their loved ones.
- 54% of participants stressed they would be embarrassed about discussing their incontinence problems with family or friends.
- 52% of participants stated they would rather hide their incontinence issues instead of asking for assistance.
These results and statements suggest that many seniors would rather hide their incontinence and suffer alone instead of inconveniencing family or friends. They are even willing to take evasive measures to avoid help from loved ones. Almost half of those surveyed (46%) are concerned about becoming a burden, 52% admitted to hiding Stress Urinary Incontinence problems and almost two thirds preferred assisted living over being cared for by family or friends.
