A Caregiver Conversation by Carallel: Durable Medical Equipment (DME) 101

Durable medical equipment (DME) is equipment that’s used at home or anywhere outside of the hospital. Just like the name says, to be considered DME, the equipment or device must be able to withstand repeated use. And while your loved one might not need it now, chances are that they will at some point in the future. 

So Matt Perrin, Carallel’s Director of Caregiver Engagement is joined by Carallel Care Advocate, Perry Mimms, to discuss the many types of DME, where to get it, and how to pay for it.
