experience as pleasurable as possible offering the widest variety
of assisted living products on the web. If there is any item you
are searching for that is not yet found in our online catalog, please

about our customers will not be sold or rented to third parties.
Occasionally, some of the information you provide (such as name,
address, e-mail address) may be used exclusively by us to keep you
informed about improvements to the site and upcoming specials.
Many of our products are built when ordered and drop shipped directly from manufacturer factories (items including but not limited to showers, tubs and lifts). Once production has commenced on items built when ordered, any/all cancellations are subject to approval by the manufacturer.
Additionally, orders are processed based on information provided by customers. On the date an order is received, an invoice detailing the order is sent via email or fax to the customer for review. It is the customer's responsibility to make sure everything on the invoice is accurate. If there is an error, you must notify us the day you receive the invoice of the error so that we can put a change order through to the factory. Once the unit is shipped, it's too late to make changes. If an item must be returned or exchanged, see our returns policy below.
All orders must be
inspected for accuracy and completeness within 5 days of receipt.
If after careful inspection it is discovered that it is not what
you ordered or there are pieces missing, you must contact us immediately

total based on size or weight. In these cases, exact cost of shipping
will be charged. Details for shipping requirements outside of this
matrix will always be communicated to you by phone representative
before charges are incurred.
** Truck Shipping applies to larger products - Handicap Showers, bathtub with a door, and the Porch Lift/Elevator. Truck delivery means employing
the use of a common carrier trucking firm. Some conditions to the above pricing may apply regarding residential versus commercial delivery dependent upon product ordered. Shipping rates tend to be higher if ordering wall surround with walk in tub units. The above table is an estimate and is subject to change dependent upon current rates.
