Our Story - Transforming Caregiving, One Video and Product at a Time

Adaptive Equipment & Caregiving Corner produces educational and instructional videos and home medical equipment product reviews for professional caregivers, families caring for a loved one, and older adults who want to age in place.

Our Mission

Our mission is to enhance the continuity of care from healthcare facility to home, increase client and caregiver safety during daily care, and maintain the client's optimal level of functional independence.

Our Story

Our story began with a simple vision - to bridge the gap between healthcare facilities and home care by empowering caregivers with valuable resources that improve the lives of those we serve.

Improving Continuity of Care

We understand that the transition home can be exciting and challenging for individuals and their families. Our Caregiver's Video Library equips professional caregivers and families caring for a loved one with the necessary skills and knowledge for a safe and successful return home.

Prioritizing Client and Caregiver Safety

Safety and independence are at the core of our values. Our videos are carefully crafted to enhance client and caregiver safety during daily care routines. We emphasize adaptive equipment usage, proper techniques, and best practices, enabling caregivers to provide excellent care while minimizing the risk of injuries or accidents.
