Stacey,
Our senior center does not have a gift shop. What a great idea!

Cheryl, check out your local Senior Center gift shop. Often people donate packages of adult diapers to these types of places, if they were previously in the caregiving or Hospice carer role, and their loved one has passed away, leaving them with excess supplies.

 I know that I have a bunch of packs that I intend on donating, but haven't gotten around to it yet, following the car of my FIL on Hospice, and he passed away last September.  I'm STILL uncomfortable entering the room where he passed away! 

I often but my blue chuck pads at our local SC gift shop, to use for my dog as wee-wee pads near our back door at nighttime.

I think Medicare only pays for Depends is when ur on Hospice. Call a visiting nurse assoc. and see if they get diapers donated. They may give you some. I also bought pull ups from Walgreens using their Surenity brand. Like said, they have buy one get the second 50 % off sales. They also have a monthly booklet where they may offer a $5 coupon for a bag.

Contact your Medicaid case manager to find out what is covered and how to order. Unless on hospice Medicare does not cover incontinence items

I've been getting them at Walmart for my dad, not too pricey. But I will check Costco this weekend to buy in bulk. He likes the pull ups. Calls them his emergency pants.

Medicaid provides incontinence supplies (at least in this state). Contact your case worker to learn how to order them. Typically you are given a contact point, order on the phone, and they are delivered to your door.

If the person who needs them has Alzheimers or Dementia they might already qualify for hospice and if they do, these supplies are free from hospice. Alz and dementia patients can often qualify for hospice much sooner than those with other illnesses.

You can join Freecycle in your community. Once in awhile someone no longer has any use for them and will gladly give them away. However, that doesn't keep you supplied. I have also found some in thrift stores (usually larger sizes, though) and flea markets/swap meets. I rarely have had to pay full price for them, and my mom has been with me for a year and a half now.

Sams club. They have a protective underware that is for men or women...they are pull up. It is their brand.....for 72 in a box, large size..less than $31 per box...AND THAT INCLUDES FREE SHIPPING. We have been ordering 2 boxes at a time for several years. They also carry the diaper style and also pads. Not only is the shipping
Nice since we are 80 miles away....but it's The cheapest we have found. Look at their website, under health then incontinence.
Good luck to you.

I buy mine for my mom when Walgreen's has them buy 1 for 50% and I buy the Walgreen's brand. Medicare won't pay for them but I am not sure about other sources.
