Northern Arizona Adult Disposable Briefs Supply Bank

Stated in a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, some form of urinary incontinence affects approximately 50 million persons in the United States, with as many as 25 million experiencing transient or ongoing incontinence. Most of these people are older adults, many of whom may be living on limited incomes with limited buying power once medical expenses are factored in. In addition, many disabled people are obliged to wear diapers for a variety of reasons, incontinence and inability to use a bathroom unaided among the most common.
NAZSAC has identified a need in our senior community to address this issue. Some seniors can’t afford incontinence supplies. Without absorbent products, many stop leaving the house for fear of having an accident adding another factor to becoming a ‘shut-in’. Therefore, NAZSAC can assist seniors to acquire incontinent supplies not covered by Medicare and other insurance.

We are constantly in need of additional supplies.
