It is often assumed that incontinence is the inevitable result of dementia but this may not be so. True loss-of-control incontinence may occur relatively late in the prognosis of the disorder.

Incontinence occurring before this late stage should be investigated and treated as would happen with anyone who does not have dementia.

Seeking help early and receiving a proper diagnosis could resolve the problem and would help to allay concerns.
