Welcome to Long-Term Living's Special Purchasing Guide devoted exclusively to Facilities. Similar in format to our annual BUYERS GUIDE, this targeted guide will direct you to an array of products and services to help keep your facility up to date and operating smoothly. This guide will provide you with easy access to further information about the items of interest to you. We hope you find it informative and useful to you and your staff.

Coming in December, our Service Guide will provide you with service resources covering the ancillary, business, medical/resident care, personnel sectors, and more.

Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions for this and other future Specialty Purchasing Guides. I look forward to hearing from you.

Völker Health Care Beds are often referred to as the “Healthcare Beds in Disguise.” The casters, siderails, motors, scissors mechanisms, and cranks are all hidden from sight. This allows Völker to enhance the resident room appearance for a more homelike living environment. Appealing to residents and their families, Völker beds allow healthcare facilities to attract residents by offering a more desirable image.

In addition, Völker now offers the innovative “MIS-Micro-Stimulation” pressure-reducing lying surface on every bed.
