The Outreach Committee of South Carolina Aging in Place Coalition (SCAIPC) supported seniors in our area with a “Depends” drive. SCAIPC is a non-­profit organization supporting and educating people as they prepare to age in place. Trident Area Agency on Aging provides assistance, advocacy and answers on aging in the Trident area.

Staff at this local, not-for-profit organization answer calls on a daily basis from area seniors requesting assistance with incontinence supplies. Often times, as many seniors struggle to meet the demands of rent, utilities, medication and food, there simply are no funds remaining. The answer to this frequently asked question truly “Depends” on the generosity of our community donors.
