Partners in Home Care offers a variety of Home Medical Equipment Services. Home Medical Equipment is a category of devices used for patients whose care is being managed from a home or other private facility managed by a nonprofessional Caregiver or Family member. It is often referred to as Durable Medical Equipment (DME) as it is intended to withstand repeated use by non-professionals or the patient, and is appropriate for use in the home.
