In a marketplace where focus on company profit duels with a customer base that has restricted funds plus a dwindling trust in service providers, I am here to assure you that there are business owners practicing social responsibility.
1ST Senior Care is much more than a provider of mobility and other assistive technologies; we are a company focused on customer satisfaction through thorough communication. 1st Senior Care is a woman owned business that started fourteen years ago with a full commitment to customer service. This means working with anyone that has a question with regard to a product to ensure that the right product is being purchased for the customer.
According to an article from Health Affairs, a journal available online with focus on health policy thought and research entitled Wheelchairs, Walkers, And Canes: What Does Medicare Pay For, and Who Benefits – “…forty percent of unpaid caregivers obtained assistive technology on behalf of people in their care…” The article also states a consensus “among consumers, policymakers, and researchers that assistive technology is important to promoting self-care and independence…[and] might reduce reliance on personal care, and might lower health-related costs” Lastly, for the purposes of this informational blog, the article states that Medicare coverage of durable medical equipment (DME) needs to be studied more intensely. I believe this is an article worth reading in full detail.
Full circle back to 1st Senior Care we fully list the Medicare 21 Supplier Standards on our website, stating our dedication to it as well as responsibly supplying assistive technology suited to a customer’s need, such as motorized transportation, lifts, ramps, beds, chairs, plus a plethora of other assistive medical equipment priced at the best price made available to us.
The ethos of a caring company existing in this economic market is not by any means ending. It only takes getting the word out as to which companies still practice social responsibility.
