Memorial Weekend

Thank you service men and woman that have gone above and beyond to serve our country! Thank you !

Every year since Dusty and I have been married we have spent Memorial weekend in Connerville on Blue River with his mom’s side of the family.  It started out we would stay in campers down by the river, cook out and enjoy ALL the elements. Dusty’s grandparents, Uncle, Aunt and cousin, his dad and mom and his sister and her family would all be there and accounted for.  The Connerville cemetery fundraiser dinner was always Memorial weekend on Saturday and it was tradition while his grandparents were living to go and say hi to all the neighbors on Blue River and support the cemetery fund. Dusty’s great grandparents and other distant relatives were buried in that cemetery so it was important for his grandpa and grandma to support that good cause.  Since we lost Dusty’s dad 8 years ago going to Connervile and going to the cemetery has a whole new meaning on Memorial weekend. We go enjoy Blue River still, we get to stay in the air conditioned house now and cook in the kitchen but the memorial part is more meaningful! Remember your loved ones this weekend that have fought for our country and others that have been in our families and touched our lives some how one way or another. More importantly enjoy the time you have with your loved ones right in the here and now!  

It looks like an aquarium in here!

I hear that spring colds are the worst!

How about fall colds or winter colds?

If you ask me any colds are the worst!

Sadie and I both had “spring colds” within the last couple of weeks. Just the typical runny nose, headache and a cough came with this one. This cold seemed to settle in our chests and we seemed to hold onto this cough a little longer than normal. I took her to her doctor and they didn’t recommend a nebulizer this time for her but which I was thankful for. However, if we did have to be prescribed a nebulizer. These are the cutest nebulizers we have gotten in!! Turtles and the fish that looks like Nimo are adorable! Makes the whole process a little less bothersome.

Hope your spring is cold free!


Quad Canes and Single Point Canes

Several years ago we had a precious WWII veteran that would frequent our store.  He was a go getter! He got up every morning and went and sat with his wife at the nursing home where she laid quietly.  She never acknowledged he was there due to her Alzheimer disease but that never stopped him from going and sitting by her side and talking to her.  He would talk to the staff and talk to the visitors as they came in and out.  Everyone knew him! He walked with a cane that he bought from our store.  It had American Flags on it and he walked with it proudly!  He always had people stopping and talking to him about his cane. He probably bought 20 of those American Flag canes and gave them out to his friends that needed them.  We miss him and I always think of him when I see an American Flag can today.

We keep Quad canes and Single Point Canes in stock.  They both have good practical uses that can benefit you.

Quad Canes are good for helping you feel like you have a little more stability.  It has a wider base and four little feet.  It stands up on it’s own when you are sitting in a chair or resting between walks.

Single Point Canes give you something to assist with your walking.  It helps when ambulating over rough surfaces and your gait needs some assistance, the cane is perfect for that extra help.

The quad canes usually have 2 choices of base sizes to choose from and come in a few standard colors like bronze, silver or chrome and black.  They have soft cushioned handles for comfort as well.  They can be height adjusted for the proper fitting for you the patient.

The cane designs are just fun! We have a variety of canes you can choose from.  It is a great way to display your personality through your cane.  They have soft foam handles, they have hard plastic handles, and also wooded shepard hook handles. There are several accessories that can be attached for convenience.   Like a wrist loop so you don’t drop it or lose it.  A cane holder that will clip onto a wheelchair. They are all height adjustable but we have wooden ones that can be cut to size.

Hope that helps give you a sample of the difference in the two canes.

Est. 2000

Equip Care got a new sign for our showroom in March!

Est. 2000 !  Is that right?  Is that possible that we have been taking care of people’s medical equipment needs for that long?

It just seems like yesterday when we started out of a room in our barn house.  We called it the “Equip Care Room”!  We had bought just a few pieces of equipment to have “in stock”.

2000 was a good year!
