My goal for the expo was to help caregivers realize we are just like them and we do the same things they do every day. They are not alone. We want to help them choose the right product for their needs because we know exactly what they are going through.

Leading physician-operated medical equipment and supply company, Discount Medical Supplies, supported the 6th Annual Caregiver Expo sponsored by the Area Office on Aging of Northwestern Ohio on November 2. Dr. Jon Segal, founder and CEO of Discount Medical Supplies, had the honor of serving as an invited panelist for the expo where he met with caregivers in the area.
At the expo, the Parkway Place banquet hall was filled with booths that featured support groups, information on great alternatives of insurance providers, online medical supply stores, and hospice care, the expo delivered one single message to all caregivers: You are not alone!
Studies show that caregiving for a family member can have a significant impact on the caregiver’s health. According to a 2004 study by the University of California, family caregivers can experience high levels of extreme stress that can take as much as 10 years off the caregiver’s life.
Dr. Segal is especially connected to the caregiving field because he has been a caregiver his whole life in multiple capacities: from the age of 10, when he was helping his mother care for his father who was sick with cancer, to caring for his grandmother before she passed away, to currently caring for his 102 year-old grandfather. Because of all this, Segal decided to become a doctor because he enjoys helping people.
“It was great for me to be at the expo answering questions from caregivers who are using our products because it taught me how we can better service them,” said Segal. “My goal for the expo was to help caregivers realize we are just like them and we do the same things they do every day. They are not alone. We want to help them choose the right product for their needs because we know exactly what they are going through.”
Discount Medical Supplies carries an extensive variety of products that caregiver will need at some point including incontinence products, wound care products, mobility products, over-the-counter, pain management products and much more.
