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 nutritional drinks.

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."
