Kim shared their story with joy, hope and love. Kim claims that it all started in 2020 when she was forced to undergo medical treatment for Covid. AccuCare was an amazing place to work, and it was rewarding. However, I was aware that it can be stressful to work 1 on 1 with someone sick, especially if they are trying to manage their symptoms. I might one day meet someone who is calm and cool. Then I’ll say, “I feel your illness.” As if you were a family member, I care for your health. It is so wonderful to be there for them. AccuCare staff is always kind to me when it’s sick and ready to thank them. I had to find a compromise. A device that could be used as medical equipment and first aid. I started looking for products that could help with falls and prevent fractures. I was adamant that I didn’t need so much assistance. I needed only a bluetooth neck brace, and a neck belt. EMS was looking for exactly the product until someone pointed it out with in home health care.
I began researching the requirements of EMS and looked at various vendors to find a more durable, stronger product. I realized that there were no products that could assist people in moving their upper bodies and preventing falls. This product was my goal.
Blue Spruce was the right product. Within one week, I had ordered one. It was strong enough to withstand several falls. My only accident was unloading a box from the van. I was once injured when I fell. My partner helped me get up and stopped me falling. The next day I used the product and had another 20 falls. One of these left me with a fractured wrist. I was able to avoid any further injuries or falls. Most law enforcement officers and EMS personnel use this device. The TIAA Wide Angle canes are reminiscent of baby stilts.
