Home healthcare supplies promise to be an increasingly profitable revenue stream for independent pharmacies. As the baby boom generation ages, the number of adults over age 65 is likely to reach more than 82 million by the year 2040. At the same time, adults are both living longer and wishing to remain in their homes for as long as possible. These trends point to a growing market for home healthcare supplies that help older adults stay in their homes and meet their daily living needs.
This demand for home healthcare supplies bodes well for independent pharmacies. Independents have a well-deserved reputation for providing exceptional service to members of their community, and customers shopping for home healthcare supplies may increasingly turn to community pharmacies for help with home healthcare needs.
To service this demand, independent pharmacies need a relationship with a home healthcare and durable medical equipment distributor who can provide access to comprehensive products, competitive pricing and excellent service. That’s exactly what independents can find with H. D. Smith.
