HCD Supports Family Caregivers

Family Caregivers, We See the You Bring to the Job Every Day.

It’s the toughest job you’ll ever love (as one old ad campaign once said) and also a labor of love (as the Bible says). The key word here is love, because love is what family caregivers bring to their job day in and day out.But like so many worthwhile things, being a family caregiver is not always easy and not always enjoyable. It takes grit, determination, and strength to be the person a loved one depends on for basic needs. That’s why the team at HCD honors family caregivers during National Caregivers Month and all year long by being the partner caregivers know they can rely on for fast, on-time delivery of supplies for incontinence, urology, bowel, wound, and diabetes (instrument and testing supplies).

Did you notice “Be Compassionate” right there in the middle? It’s compassion that drives our customer service reps, enrollment team, and the rest of the crew here at HCD to bring our A-game to every customer we serve. According to the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, caregivers spend 13 hours per month doing tasks such as researching care services. HCD aims to help cut that number of hours down so our family caregivers have more time to devote to more important tasks or things that will make them happy. Our team can help by taking care of the paperwork needed to get the medical supplies your health care professionals have recommended and by being a resource to answer your questions about the products we provide.

Family Caregivers Need More than Support. They Need Someone to Rely On.

We understand how difficult caregiving can be and how important family caregivers are to their families. As one of the premier medical supply delivery companies, we naturally spend a lot of time thinking about what the people who ultimately use our supplies want, expect, need, and deserve. As National Family Caregivers Month gets underway, we want to pull back to think about the family caregivers who work so hard to make sure their loved ones have everything they need when they need it.Just as the family member relies on the family caregiver, the family caregiver needs a network of support all their own. HCD wants to be part of that network of support. We’ve already started by earning a 98.6% satisfaction rate from our customers.

But wait, there’s more. It takes a village to support a family caregiver as they do their job, including a support system of people facing the same challenges, health care professionals who can answer questions about how, when, and why to do something medical-related, and self-care reminders for the caregiver.Below is a list of resources we’ve gathered for family caregivers. We hope these will serve as a reference for caregivers as they do the hardest job they’ll ever love.
