A phenomenological study was conducted to answer the following question: What can you tell me about dealing with urinary incontinence (UI)? Four dyads, caregivers and care recipients, living in home settings in northwestern Ohio comprised the purposive sample. Transcription of each 1-hour interview was reviewed by use of Colaizzi's (1978) method of data analysis. The analysis, framed by Orem's (1995) Self-Care Deficit Theory of Nursing, identified two themes: coping with care deficits and supporting self-care agency. Coping with self-care deficits related to UI emerged from the findings as components of care that caused the individual to struggle to maintain balance of self while adapting to life changes brought on by a health deviation that occurred personally or to a significant other. Support was a mechanism available to the self-care agency of the dyad that alleviated or prevented their stress. Caregiver suggestions were found that enhanced self-management capability. Results of this study make a valuable contribution to rehabilitation nursing agency by providing important insights into dealing with UI from caregivers' and care recipients' perspectives, offering direction for nursing practice and education, and serving as an impetus for further nursing research.
