    Why Shop with Ease Living?

    why shop with ease living

     If you have checked out our site or know our story, you know a little bit about why shopping with Ease Living is different than shopping at your local pharmacy or other medical supply store. I would like to elaborate a little bit and show you why  Ease Living is the best choice for independence products.

    1. Alison (me!)! For more than 20 years, I have worked with countless individuals in helping them achieve independence. As an occupational therapist, I have a unique set of qualifications to know which products are the most useful and in demand. I test all products before putting them up for sale, making sure they are the best in the world.
    2. Curation. Many drugstores or medical equipment companies have buyers that look for the the latest and greatest in the field. However, they are often looking at profit margins and trends rather than the usability and durability of the products they choose to carry. Since I have worked with a lot of  patients, I have the education and the experience to choose the finest, most useful equipment available.
    3. Beauty and luxury. Many of the products I carry cannot be found in your corner drugstore. That’s because I choose the very best and most beautiful aids I can find. That doesn’t mean I select ONLY on aesthetics! The products must be high quality, and the best at performing the task at hand before they make it into the collection. I look beyond price to find the very best products for the job. These unique solutions tend to be more beautiful and durable than the products offered by other retailers.
    4. Service and accountability. Dealing with a small company means you won’t talk to a clueless sales associate or an anonymous call center employee. Often, if you have a question about your order, you’ll talk to me and I will help you find the perfect solution to your problem.

    I hope you’ll choose to order your independence products from Ease Living. I'm  confident I can help you find the best product for your situation. Shop today!

    What Is Occupational Therapy?

     What Is Occupational Therapy

    The World Federation of Occupational Therapists defines occupational therapy like this:

    Occupational therapy is a client-centered health profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by working with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement.

    That is a mouthful. When I enter a patient’s room and introduce myself I tell them that my job is to make sure a person can do what they need to do to take care of themselves. This includes things like getting dressed, going to the bathroom, getting around the house and community and even doing their job. All of this can be hard after an illness or injury. As an OT practicing in a hospital in acute care- where people go when they are first admitted to the hospital or just had surgery, this is what I do. Occupational therapists also work with adults in nursing homes, out patient clinics and home health. Children receive OT in the home, hospitals, clinics and in school to help them perform to the best of their abilities in their roles. While many occupational therapists work with kids, I have always been partial to the older population. It just suits me better. :)
