The combination of urinary incontinence, dementia (memory loss, confusion, etc) with gait apraxia (difficulty walking, ataxia, etc) is the classic triad seen in patients with Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus.

This triad has been classically dubbed "Wet, Wacky, and Wobbly" !

Other clues could be
No cortical atrophy, intermittent raised CSF pressure, no CSF block
