Has anyone had any experience buying diapers in Israel? I would think they should be available in drug stores and the larger grocery stores. I will be going in a couple of weeks. I have been to Israel 3 times before, but always with a tour group and it is not easy to get to stores that might carry diapers when you are with a group.

I was by a friend who went to Israel that there is a national nonprofit medical help services called Ezer Mizion which sell adult diapers at reduced price.I didn't find diapers listed on their site https://ezermizion.org , but my friend says that they actualy have a very good selection despite not mentioning this. He called up the number given & got an English speaker to give him info. You might be able to call the American office listed on their site & get more info.
My friend didn't find such a good selection in drug stores. Mostly Depends and diapers made by a local partner of Depends. He thinks he saw a few other brands, Prevail came to mind, but no store had anything close to the selection of Ezer Mizion.
It has been quite a few years since my friend was there so his info isn't so up to date. I tried googling adult diapers in Israel & got the following sites:
http://www.yasam.co.il/items_h.php?sear ... 7%99%D7%9D
http://www.hitul4u.co.il
http://www.goldpharm.co.il/13-urine-absorbent
http://www.seniores.co.il
http://www.adultdiaper.co.il
http://www.chemitec.co.il
I couldn't get the three sites I actualy opened in English, but it gave an idea of what they have in Israel. I also figured out how to get to the phone number. I assume if you call up and try speaking English they will get an English speaker to answer you.

Vandel,
Thank you so much for your post. I have looked at all of your links. I will report back when I get a chance. From Israel, we go to Ukraine and I have that down.

Hi from Ukraine,
Arrived here after 8 days in Israel. I did not really find a good place to buy diapers while in Israel. We had a rent car, and did go to one grocery store, but did not really find any incontinence supplies other than some pads. I' sure that they could be found in some pharmacies and in a larger grocery stores. I brought enough supplies to cover all the time in Israel, so no panic. No problem here in Ukraine. I bought the Super Seni diapers in a large Ashan store, like a super Walmart. I was able to find the Super Seni Plus in a pharmacy near our friend's apartment here in Kiev.

Gary,

Finding the Seni's is very good news. I wear the Seni Quatro and the Seni Super Plus.

The Super Seni Plus is almost equal to the Abena M-4. Have not seen the quatro at all here in Ukraine.

I have another trip to Israel in late September. I just wanted to check in and see if anyone has had any more recent experience with buying good quality diapers in Israel. This time I will be there for 3 weeks and may really need to purchase some while I am in country. Thanks!

Texan,

While in Israel please make note for us of what brands are available and which stores sell them. Also, please take a few pictures for us.
