We are go the same route. Babies are not the only people who need our help.
The Hidden Problem
15-20% of adults over the age of 65 are incontinent.
Medicare DOES NOT cover incontinence supplies. With an average of $200/Month cost, many go without the necessary supplies.
People Just Don't Know
There is a major lack in the discusson around adult incontinence which is why it is so important to us. Adults need supplies just as our babies do.
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 Tucson Families!
