Adult Incontinence Product Bank

Community organizations have come together to create an adult incontinence product bank dedicated to assisting individuals with their incontinence needs.  If you or someone you care for requires adult diapers, barrier creams, or related products we are here to help. Located at the DukeWELL-ness Clinic our compassionate team of volunteers will be providing these essential items free of charge while supplies last.  Drop by and allow us to lend a helping hand to you during your caregiving journey.
