WHAT IS AT THE CORE OF EACH PROPOSAL?
Simply: It is people responding to a request to join other people in a partnership to develop a program that partially solves the problems of yet other people the funder wants addressed.
WHAT EXACTLY IS A PROPOSAL
The Community Cares
The U.S. Census Bureau reports nearly
250,000 FTE “health workers” employed by local government.
UI affects 200 million people worldwide.5
Based on expert opinion, 25 million adult Americans experience transient or chronic UI.6 NAFC estimates that 75-80% of those sufferers are women, 9-13 million of whom have bothersome, severe, symptoms.
Consumer research reveals that one in four women over the age of 18 experience episodes of leaking urine involuntarily.2
One-third of men and women ages 30-70 have experienced loss of bladder control at some point in their adult lives and may be still living with the symptoms.2
Of men and women ages 30-70 who awaken during the night to use the bathroom, more than one-third get up twice or more per night to urinate, fitting the clinical diagnosis of nocturia. Of these adults, one in eight say they sometimes lose urine on the way to the bathroom.2

Dear Mr. Klepfer,
Wesley Long Community Hospital is a community, non-profit hospital providing quality care for the citizens of Guilford County and surrounding areas. One area of strong emphasis is to promote health and prevent disease. In keeping with this part of our mission, the hospital intends to provide a program that educates and trains people with bladder control difficulties in ways that keep them from surgery and/or drugs.
Because of the large number of people over 55 who cannot control their bladder but could be trained to do so, the program would start as a pilot project using members of Connections 55, a group sponsored by the hospital for healthy older adults. We are requesting $10,750 to implement this pilot program, which we hope to expand to people of all ages in the future.
Your thoughtful consideration of this proposal would be appreciated. Please call if additional information is needed.
Martha M. Boschen Manager,
Older Adult Services Wesley Long Community Hospital
1. Explain Difficult Problem Easily
suffering from bladder control difficulty or urinary incontinence often become isolated and incur increased medical costs. Bladder control difficulties cost society over $7 billion per year for people over 65 years old. It is estimated to affect 10 to 20% of people in this age range.
To get a feel for what these
experience every day, just remember that time at the mall or grocery store when you suddenly realized that
HAD to find a bathroom!
who suffer bladder problems fail to ask for help because they believe that bladder problems are normal or they are just afraid. Those who do ask for help don't usually get the attention they need.
Some studies indicate that doctors do not consider bladder control difficulty a problem even when patients are seen in acute-care hospitals or nursing homes. However, other studies show that patients who develop bladder control difficulty during hospitalization for an acute illness, also can, and sometimes do, develop chronic incontinence.
with bladder control difficulty is a woman over
50 years old who has had one or more children.
There are between four and eight types of bladder control problems. They are caused by several interrelated factors including physiological, behavioral, emotional, social and environmental factors. For the
woman over 50 years old
the problem will most likely start out as a physiological one, such as the stretching of muscles around the bladder.
Take Ethel, who is 60 years old, as an example of someone experiencing these difficulties. After a few days of "feeling poorly" she noticed that she is making more trips to the bathroom. Soon she stopped drinking fluid thinking it would slow down the frequency of bathroom visits. Ethel became dehydrated. Her bladder thus became a breeding ground for bacteria, and Ethel soon has a terrible infection! She withdrew socially because she had painful bladder spasms, discomfort, and an embarrassing odor. Ethel's doctor gave her antibiotics for the infection, but the incontinence continued. Psychologically, Ethel was frustrated and depressed, leading to continued isolation. Ethel and many women like her experience repeated bladder infections, which can lead to more serious kidney infections and hospitalization.
