There really is no place like home.
While Louisville hospitals provide state of the art medical care, home is a place of peace, relief, and love.
For the ill, elderly, or disabled, being at home gives them the most comfortable recovery possible.
At Discount Medical Supplies, our services are designed to provide home health care supplies to meet your needs by offering a wide range of medical equipment, products, and services in the convenience and comfort of your own home.
Recovering at Home
When patients get to recover at home, they are able to reduce the amount of time spent in the hospital, which can alleviate hospital bills and other expenses incurred as a result of an extended hospital stay, and they can avoid staying in a long-term care facility or nursing home in Louisville.
Home health care costs are significantly less than either of these options.
More than the costs involved, patients are more comfortable, happier, and are actually shown to recover better at home than anywhere else.
In their home, they can enjoy the full-time support of family and friends who can be involved with treatment and encourage their progress and independence. Those who have the opportunity to recover at home consistently have higher morale, better healing, and faster recovery overall.
While caregivers carry the brunt of the work during recovery, we provide medical equipment to homes in Louisville to make caregiving easier. Having the right tools for the right job makes living at home easier for everyone.
Our medical equipment and home health care supplies give you exactly what you need to have the same quality and convenience from a hospital, with the comfort and peace you can only find at home.
Lift chairs are medical devices designed to help those who are unable to stand up or sit down without help. They give independence and comfort with a safe, gentle lift.
We carry the most reliable brands and the most popular products used by families in Louisville to help keep your loved ones comfortable.
Whether you’re looking for a full electric lift chair or just a power seat to help you enjoy a little more independence, we can help you find the medical equipment that works best for you and your home.
Stair Lifts for the Home
A stair lift will carry your loved one up and down the stairs in a safe seated position. This is particularly necessary for those living in homes with their bedroom or kitchen on another level, giving them easy access to their home.
Stair lifts can be straight or curved, depending on the design of your home. Manufacturers like AmeriGlide, Harmar, Sterling, Stannah, and Thyssen-Krupp understand your struggle and have created a way to give you a safe and comfortable ride up the stairs.
Our medical equipment experts can help you find the best stairlift for your home. We can also arrange the purchase and installation of your stairlift to make the process fast and convenient for you.
Diabetic patients must always have the supplies needed to monitor every aspect of their health. Medical diagnostic equipment that is dependable and easy to use makes diabetes a little more management in everyday life. Diabetic blood glucose meters are small or medium devices that measure the approximate amount of concentration of glucose in the blood. We carry multiple brands, including our favorite, easy-to-use Easy Touch.
We carry a selection of glucose meters, insulin products, lancets, and other accessories in Louisville critical for you or one of your loved ones living with diabetes.
Diabetic Shoes: Diabetic shoes are engineered specifically for those suffering from neuropathy. They have unique features you can’t find in any other shoe. From the construction to the materials, they provide comfort and protection and improved mobility.
People living with diabetes are prone to foot injuries because of nerve damage that prohibits them from feeling the pain of cracks, sores, and foot injuries. This causes skin ulcers, infections, calluses, and can lead to serious foot issues.
At Discount Medical Supplies, our diabetic footwear is designed to avoid injuries and prevent complications that could turn critical.
Diabetic Socks: Diabetic socks can provide much-needed relief to those living with diabetic foot pain. They are specially designed for providing protection and comfort for those living with diabetic nerve pain.
As diabetes could raise the blood sugar level, it could also increase the risk of foot ulcers, which is why any diabetic socks from Discount Medical Supplies are created without any binding or elastic that could potentially restrict the blood circulation.
They also have a seamless design to minimize friction and pain and come with moisture control which is necessary to reduce infection risks.
Purchasing a hospital bed is the best thing you can do for your aging loved one living at home.
Give them the ease of propping up or laying down without needing to fuss with a bunch of medical pillows. This allows your loved one to rest comfortably without sores or pain from getting in and out of bed. Most hospital beds already have bed rails installed for an easy grip to lift you up or help you settle down.
The technology in these electric beds can help your loved ones recover sooner with deeper sleep and more comfortable rest. Now, we also carry bariatric hospital beds!
Motorized Mobility Scooters
Discount Medical Supplies carries a full line of motorized scooters, wheelchairs, canes, crutches, medical walkers, Rollator, knee scooters, and other walking aids for those who are recovering from an injury or living with a medical condition in Louisville. We also carry wheelchairs with pediatric and bariatric accommodations!
Each mobility aid is the same professional quality found in Louisville hospitals and we are proud to offer Pride scooters to our customers. For taking a walk outside, spending time with grandkids, or just doing your own grocery shopping, our mobility medical equipment can grant you the freedom you want while giving the protection you need.
Fall Prevention at Home
Each year, thousands of Louisville seniors are injured and many die from falls and complications that could have been prevented from safety products in the home.
We provide a variety of fall prevention products like footstools, bed risers, bathtub bars and shower benches to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones in your home.
Our medical equipment specialists can help you purchase what you need and use the equipment correctly to protect the loved ones in your home.
This is just a small sampling of what we offer. If you can find it in a hospital, you can find it at Discount Medical Supplies in Louisville.
We provide home health care supplies and medical equipment for elderly, terminally ill, chronic, disabled, surgical patients. All of our products are hospital grade, professional quality home healthcare supplies.
We make sure our patients have medical equipment they can rely on so you can focus on recovery. Give us a call today and we can help turn your house into a home sweet home.
