Most Don't Want to Talk About It But Adults Need Diapers Too

She is 80 now and used to love getting out to visit her friends and go to church. Three years ago she began having bathroom accidents. Her social security check only covers rent, food, and insurance costs. It can't be stretched to cover adult diapers. Now she sits by the window, watching the world go by. If she could afford adult diapers she'd be able to be a part of the life she loved. She feels isolated and lonely.

Austin Diaper Bank strives to help seniors maintain their independence for as long as possible by providing adult incontinence products. Fixed incomes and the increasing cost of living makes the purchase of these items very difficult. United Way Austin reports that adult and baby diapers are one of the top ten requested items on their assistance hotline.

How does Austin Diaper Bank get these products? Sometimes we are lucky enough to get donations of adult diapers but the reality is that financial contributions help the most. We can purchase wholesale at much better prices than you can get in the grocery stores.  Seniors across Austin will benefit from your thoughtfulness. Support us today.
