About East Bay Medical Equipment

East Bay Medical Equipment is often critical for area seniors with health or mobility problems who wish to retain their quality of life while living at home. This equipment can help both seniors and caregivers provide a comfortable and livable environment in familiar surroundings. Home medical equipment can be almost any health or assisting aid or device, including ramps, wheelchairs, shower aids, general medical supplies, monitoring devices, and more. When looking for suppliers of home medical equipment, it can be important to find one that has a large selection of products in the correct sizes. There are a few other elements that should be considered before choosing a home medical equipment supplier, other than whether they carry the correct products and sizes. One element that may make a difference in which supplier you use will be whether the company is willing to file a claim with your insurance company on your behalf or not. You should be careful when choosing suppliers because some do not accept insurance at all, which could cause some financial difficulties. The other element that is worth considering is whether the company is willing to deliver their products to your home. Delivery saves a lot of time, gas, and hassle, so it could be well worth it if there are supplies that you need to receive on a regular basis. Our video host, Julie M. Fiedler of Horizon Elder Law & Estate Planning, is a Certified Elder Law Attorney and a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.  Here she has provided a directory of home medical equipment suppliers in the Contra Costa County area. Here at The Eldercare Channel of Contra Costa County, we understand how important access to quality home medical equipment can be to seniors. We offer advice and information on many topics that are important to both seniors and caregivers, and hope that you will find our resources helpful.
