Our mission is to support those in need of incontinence wear; without discrimination of age, sex or religion. We want to start a conversation about incontinence, understand the growing need for support, to not feel alone, ashamed or embarrassed by having incontinence issues. Know that the struggle is real for the need of products and support across the state.
DUB4U is devoting its energy to passionately advocate, educate and support those who need incontinence products. Find out how you can contribute to the future of someone in need through donations of money, time and incontinence products and equipment.
Did you know?
Incontinence isn't a secret, but is a reason many don't go out to events or interact socially. One-in-15 adults suffer from a form of incontinence. Many can not afford to purchase adequate supplies to control their incontinence. With out proper control or treatment, many will suffer from skin infections, urinary tract infections, kidney infection, blood infections and even death due to poor hygiene. Many are trapped in their homes resulting in isolation and depression and malnutrition and poor hygiene.
Why do we do this?
After seeing people you know have an accident, not want to leave the house for fear of an accident or soiling themselves in front of someone made my heart ache. It showed me that I couldn't go another day without trying to make a difference in the quality of life for a person in need of incontinence products. Knowing that someone feels alone, isolated, forgotten and left behind is not acceptable to me.
So I started researching the area to see if there was support for this area. Then I looked at the entire state to see what support is there. To my surprise, there wasn't much. This is when my attitude changed. Something had to change as well and DUB4U was created.
When you see the look on someone's face as you give them the supplies they need, lend a friendly ear and heart for support, it changes you forever. You hear about how they can be with family, friends and go to events because of the donation they received. You know everything you are doing is right. We want people to have the freedom to live their lives.
Help us educate our communities, support the growing need for incontinence products and make a difference. Thank you for your support and kindness.
