Patients that suffer from incontinence know that it can be tricky to constantly keep adult diapers on hand. In addition to standard purchases to meet common physical needs, the customer’s budget must stretch to accommodate this new need.

There are some cases in which Medicaid or Medicare will cover incontinence supplies. But, for families who do not have coverage and whose money is tight, there is another solution for obtaining adult diapers.

Diaper banks are a relatively new resource for those who cannot afford to purchase adult diapers and other incontinence products. Similar to food banks, diaper banks distribute their resources through local nonprofit agencies, religious organizations like churches and synagogues, and school family resource centers. Due to eligibility restrictions, adult diapers are not distributed directly to individuals. Interested customers should contact the appropriate local agency who will obtain the products for the person in need.

 

Is there an adult diaper bank near me?

Many communities are responding to the great need to get absorbent incontinence products to those who are unable to afford them.

The Simon Foundation for Continence, a fantastic resource for news, support, and tips for living with incontinence, maintains a list of known adult diaper banks in the United States.

Please note that adult diapers should be offered at all locations listed, but service offerings can be volatile and some of the banks might have limited their products to just infant diapers.

Booster pads are placed inside any disposable undergarment with a moisture proof backing. Liners are worn in regular underwear.
