The Chatham Council on Aging is partnering with the N.C. Diaper Bank, which allows the nonprofit agency to provide incontinence supplies to about 200 seniors.

One recipient said, “I have been using incontinence diapers for at least 10 years or more and when I found out that the Chatham County Council on Aging has diapers, pull-ups and pads, that is saving me a lot of money every month.” Another recipient shared that she has to wear pull-ups as well as the pads and goes through at least a couple a day. She is so grateful, stating she spends anywhere from $70 to $80 a week.

While the Diaper Bank partnership continues, it cannot always meet the growing need. The COA is in very short supply of large and extra-large pull ups for women and men. It receives no public funds for this service nor charges a fee to those receiving the supplies. It’s asking for donations in the form of supplies or funds to allow us to support the dignity and care of seniors needing such assistance. To contribute or for more information, contact Wynne.Fields@chathamcoa.org or call 919-542-4512.
