Hospice supplies diapers in some areas, maybe everywhere. Not sure. Look up agencies in your area and call them. They might have other resources they can recommend and help you. You would also get some physical aid from them. If your father or mother were veterans, there is also help there.

Hi.. Do you have Aging & Adult Services with your mom? You can call a social worker and they will give your mom meals on wheels or diapers.. if you have food for her.. Tell the social worker you really need the diapers instead of the meals on wheels and they will send you 1 box of diapers once a month.

Hire hospice. Call your mom's Dr. for a recommendation.

Lornan, Medicare will not pay for incontinence type care nor the materials needed. If you are unable to do this part of the caregiving, for whatever reason, you would need to hire outside help and pay out of pocket from your Mother's social security or pension [if she has one].

Otherwise, how is your Mother doing being that she is 100 years old. My gosh, all the things she had witnessed over all those year when it comes to new inventions, etc. :)

Can you supply a little more information? Do you need someone to do the changing, or are you looking to have diapers supplied?

What kind of in-home care is Mom getting now?
