Action Healthcare based in Stratford, Ontario is a company that rents, installs and maintains medical assistive devices such as wheelchairs, scooters and hospital beds. The company is able to help people who are providing care and at home support to someone in their family who is ill, incapacitated or recovering from surgery. Whether it is an aging parent or grandparent who requires at home palliative care, or a child who needs to convalesce after having an operation, Action Healthcare can rent or sell the equipment that is needed to help people provide the best possible care to their loved ones. From bath lifts and stair lifts to electric hospital beds and bed pans, Action Healthcare has it all.

Caregivers often find that they are overburdened and overwhelmed when providing healthcare to a loved one at home. Many people find that their house or apartment is not properly equipped to provide medical care. Worse, they can even find that the stairs and bathrooms in their home pose a danger to the sick or infirm person they are looking after. A radical overhaul is often needed depending on the severity of the illness or injury that’s involved. Action Healthcare can help. Trained professionals who know how to safely install and maintain medical equipment in a home, they work with their customers every step of the way – taking time to explain how various equipment works, and how to properly use it.

Additionally, Action Healthcare works with rehabilitation professionals, occupational therapists and other medical professionals to ensure the proper installation and maintenance of all the medical assistive equipment they provide. And, the company has relations with most reputable insurance providers and can bill directly through organizations such as Veterans’ Affairs Canada and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board. These and other government programs may fund up to 75% of the cost of the medical equipment that people require in their home or work location. Renting rather than buying most equipment is also an option.

Caregivers who are in need of medical assistive devices or equipment to help someone in their family who is sick or recovering from surgery should contact Action Healthcare in Stratford, Ontario. To learn more about the company and the ways in which they help their customers, please give Action Healthcare a telephone call at 519-271-6700, or check out their website.
