(Englewood, NJ, November 7, 2012) – Englewood Hospital and Medical Center celebrated the success of its recent “Adult Care Brief Drive,” after collecting more than 1,000 adult briefs during the month-long event.

“Hosting the Adult Care Brief Drive is part of our ongoing commitment to provide compassionate care and support to our community,” said Lori Villa, Special Events Planner at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. “We are so thankful to those who donated to this cause, which will help ease the financial burden for so many seniors.”

The National Association for Continence estimates that 25 million Americans have urinary incontinence, a condition that experts say can lead to feelings of depression and isolation. In an effort to help remove the stigma associated with incontinence, Fort Lee resident Marlene Ceragno launched the “Adult Brief Care Drive” to create awareness and assist seniors who may be reluctant to seek help or cannot afford the products.
