ndependence. Security. Good health. Goals desired by us all. But, as we grow older, attaining and maintain ing these goals is more chal lenging. Innovations and advance ments in home medical equipment have made it easi er for older adults to reach these goals and to remain in their own homes. Home can be a personal residence or an apartment in a continuing care/retirement community or other complex. Whether recovering from an accident, illness or surgery; living with a disabil ity; or, adjusting to the nor mal effects of growing older, living at home can be a real istic and attainable goal. Home medical equipment companies provide the ser vices, equipment and sup plies to assist many individu als who believe home is where they want to be. In consultation with your physi cian and other health care professionals, the right prod ucts and services can be pre scribed and provided. Many of these products and ser vices are covered by Medicare, Medicaid or pri vate insurance. Here is a par tial list of home medical equipment and supplies: • aids for daily living

Your insurance coverage may include several pre ferred providers of home medical equipment, supplies and services. To help you decide which provider to use, ask your physician or rela tives and friends who may have been served by a home medical equipment company. Or, contact the companies yourself and ask questions that include: • Will the provider bill my insurance, Medicare and/or Medicaid when appropriate? • does the provider train, supervise and monitor its clinical services and deliv ery personnel? • Will the company deliver the products and provide instructions on their use? • does the company provide 24-hour service? • Is the provider accredited? Using products and ser vices provided by home medical equipment compa nies can add to your good health and feeling of inde pendence and security.
