HOW DOES LACK OF INCONTINENCE SUPPLIES AFFECT OUR COMMUNITY?
It is estimated that 25 million adults in the United States suffer from temporary or chronic urinary incontinence. Due to people living longer, there has been an increase in incontinence sufferers, making it the fastest-growing absorbent hygiene issue among adults.
THE IMPACTS DON’T STOP AT INDIVIDUALS, THEY AFFECT OUR COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE.
Lack of incontinence supplies leads to hygiene and health concerns, and it makes it difficult to participate in daily life with dignity. By supporting individuals to maintain their own health and independence, we hope to remove some of the barriers that prevent our neighbors from being involved in the community through work, family, etc.
People Experiencing urinary incontinence May:
- Avoid leaving home
- Miss work or be unable to hold a steady job due to poor attendance.
- Skip or avoid social events with friends and family
