for Quality Care at Home
MIP Cares provides access to a range of innovative, protective and comfortable
healthcare products, making the care journey easier for
both caregivers and care recipients.
As the senior population grows, and the preferences of elderly care recipients shift toward remaining in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible, MIP Cares meets these needs by supplying products that provide a quality of life at home, without compromise. Whether caring for someone in a professional or personal in-home setting, products such as bed pads, repositioning systems and clothing protectors are geared to help every step of the way.
Our Social Responsibility
MIP Cares is committed to offering reusable products that meet healthcare industry requirements. We work closely with third-party testing laboratories and clinical experts to ensure we continuously innovate and set the standard when launching new products. MIP is part of many trade organizations dedicated to the evolution of reusable textile use in the healthcare market.
What To Look For In-Home Health Care Products
The stress that in-home care can have on both the patient and the caregiver can be draining. However, caregivers and those seeking in-home treatments enjoy the comfort and freedom of staying at home.
Providing the best possible care with proper home care products can make a huge difference in effective patient care and caregiver support. It is our goal to give both parties as much support as possible. Whether you're purchasing for yourself or a loved one, MIP Cares gives you access to high-quality, reusable products that meet healthcare industry standards.
MIP Cares' apparel line brings together form and function to maintain both the user's dignity and protection. Our apparel is durable and easy to use for both the caregiver and care recipient.
Most hospital beds do not conform to standard twin or double-sized mattresses, so special hospital linens are often necessary when a hospital bed is used in the home. MIP Cares' home care bedding is developed to support the users' needs and well-being. Not only are our bed linens designed to accommodate a range of healthcare mattresses, but our bedding also utilizes fabric technology to offer reliability throughout its use, with additional benefits for skin health, soil release, durability, and comfort.
Cleaning & Linen Handling
When offering in-home care to a patient or a loved one, it's important to maintain a tidy and sanitary environment. MIP Cares offers several products, such as laundry bags and microfiber cloths, to help keep the home clean and your mind at ease.
While some people never experience incontinence, on average, 20% of Canadians struggle with the issue, and the number rises with age making it a frequently common problem for the elderly. Caregivers should always manage accidents with as much dignity and patience as possible. Designed with careful consideration of the user's skin environment and comfort and modesty in bed, MIP Cares' incontinence care bed pads and chair pads deliver superior absorbency and protection.
Safe Person Handling
Handling patients and loved ones safely is important to prevent injuries for all parties involved. Using suitable devices and accessories to help you reposition the person safely is one way to ensure proper handling at home. Our reusable, safe person handling line was developed with physiotherapists to properly reduce caregiver neck and back injuries caused by person repositioning. Our breathable and comfortable line of safe person handling products also benefits the care recipient during repositioning.
