More common than you think, and nothing to be ashamed of.
We are here to help.
The Hidden Problem
15-20% of adults over the age of 65 are incontinent. Unmanaged incontinence is a leading cause for otherwise healthy adults to become institutionalized, abused, or neglected.
Medicare DOES NOT cover incontinence supplies. With an average of $200/Month cost, many go without the necessary supplies.
People Just Don't Know
Adult incontinence affects more people every day than heart disease, diabetes, and cancer combined. Adults of all ages can struggle with incontinence for a variety of reasons.
The Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona is one of the few diaper banks that also provide adult incontinence supplies to those in need. These are primarily distributed through several of our 40+ partner agencies throughout Southern Arizona. Providing access to these essential supplies supports independence, dignity, and health for adults living with incontinence.
For the many active adults that we serve, pull-up style briefs in all sizes are always in high demand!
For every $1 dollar donated, we can distribute $3 worth of incontinence supplies to adults in Southern Arizona!
