Harmony Home Medical's Commitment to Aging in Place
Harmony Home Medical is revolutionizing the way we approach medical equipment. Founded by Erica, who grew up in her mother's medical equipment store, the company is on a mission to provide individuals with a comprehensive understanding of their options. By showcasing a retail version of medical equipment and offering personalized consultations, Harmony Home Medical aims to empower older adults to age in place with safety, mobility, and independence.
In this article, we delve into Erica's journey, the services Harmony Home Medical provides, and the importance of expert guidance when it comes to choosing the right equipment.
From Reluctance to Revelation: How Harmony Home Medical Came to Be
Erica shares her unique story of initially wanting nothing to do with medical equipment despite growing up in her mother's medical equipment store. However, a crisis in her mother's business propelled Erica to step in and help. Through her experiences of measuring for custom equipment and realizing the lack of visibility for medical options, Erica conceived the idea of a retail version of Harmony Home Medical.
The company would serve as a platform to showcase various equipment options, regardless of insurance coverage, ensuring that people are aware of the possibilities to enhance their lives.
