Allegro Medical Highlights Independent Living for Seniors During Healthy Aging Month, September 2014, Emphasizes Growing Demand for Home Care Products
BOLINGBROOK, Ill. --(Business Wire)--
In recognition of Healthy Aging Month, Allegro
Medical, leading supplier of high quality home medical equipment and
supplies, stresses four strategic opportunities to age independently:
take dietary supplements, practice good skincare, initiate proper wound
care and ensure mobility. As Baby Boomers reach retirement age, home
healthcare and the use of effective products will become an integral
part of everyday life for seniors who want to remain at home.
"We are focused on providing products, supplies and equipment designed
to make it easier for individuals to remain in their homes as they age,"
says Kray Kibler, chief operating officer and chief financial officer,
Allegro Medical. "In particular, it's important for individuals to
practice good skincare because the skin is the body's natural barrier to
pressure ulcers, cuts, skin tears and infections."
Kibler recommends wearing protective garments and using skin wipes as
needed, as well as using products with natural premium ingredients to
help restore and rejuvenate the skin, such as Kendall No Rinse Body
Wash, Secura Skin Moisturizing Lotion and Thera Antimicrobial Body
Cleansing Spray. Individuals should avoid products that contain benzoyl
peroxide, an extremely drying chemical that no amount of moisturizer can
repair to revitalize the skin.
Other aging-in-place products include: vitamins B and D, calcium,
and iron, wound cleanser, gauze, syringes, bandages, 4-wheel scooters,
walkers, canes, power chairs, bath supplies, pillows, massagers and
Craig Hood, executive vice president, Allegro, adds, "Healthy Aging
Month is an ideal time to educate the public about the importance of
life-long health and wellness so that more Americans can make the most
of their retirement years. We are committed to giving seniors the high
quality products and convenience they have come to expect."
