Shopping for elderly home care products you need to take care of them can literally break your bank You want to get the most bang for your buck My favorite place is to shop at a wholesale store (Sam's Club, Costco, BJ's etc) for your elder's needs as much as possible. The discount stores are the way to go. If you just look at gloves and diapers for instance. Two boxes (50 pairs) of gloves cost about $10 at the wholesale store and one box (50 pairs) at a drug store runs about $13. You get twice as much for $3 less. Same with diapers, toilet paper, diabetic or non-diabetic drinks such as Ensure®. You definitely get back your yearly fee in just one trip.
Another great place to shop is on-line. You have to search the web to find the best deals, but it can be well worth your time, especially for medically related products. I shop at the local medical supply store, but their prices are very high, but if you need something now, you just have to suck it up and shop there. One issue with the on-line shopping is sometimes you have to buy in bulk and unless you have a place to store the products or if your elder is not going to use up the products, you may want to look locally.
