My story Founder and CEO Jacquay Davis, the inspiration to start this business started with my own family.
“I come from a very large and diverse Christian family. We were robust and loved life. However, as we aged, I saw senior family members who began to have a need for assistance, and I saw the need for medical equipment that could help with those daily functions. “I also saw co-workers experience stress due to concerns for their elderly parents or loved one’s inability to access the resources they needed to continue their quality of life.” That was what led me to start my company, a leading supplier of innovative medical equipment.
Mobility can easily be the number one concern as we age. WNR Get Up and Go offers medical supplies to make lives easier for those facing limited mobility. One of the top products is a bed that helps people with limited mobility to get out of bed safely while also reducing the strain on caregivers, as the bed does all the heavy lifting and adjustments.
“I want to raise awareness of new technologies and devices that can change the way we age, the way we view aging, and that will have a positive effect on the quality of life, even when transitioning to the winter of life”. “Aging does not mean learning stops, or fulfillment ends, and it definitely does not mean that having fun is in the past. Making new connections, feeling empowered and exploring new interests and talents at an older age can be magical for anyone.” I am proud to sell products that make a difference in the lives of local seniors and people with disabilities and notes that the company provides premium customer service. This is reflected in the many satisfied customers who attest to how Get Up and Go products have changed their lives for the better.
“My grandfather was having a hard time getting out of bed. He started to feel depressed because of that. After we brought the Active Care bed home his health started to improve and his mood too,” wrote customer Perry Hardcourt in a Google review.
Equity is an important value of WNR Get Up and Go. “I believe I have a unique understanding of the difficulties faced by people, as well as the portion of our population who are unable to access the same level of healthcare or treatment as everyone else”. “People of all backgrounds, ethnicities and financial circumstances need medical equipment. However, we know equality does not necessarily mean equity, as services are not distributed equally across all populations.” “The goals of my company are to not only address those inequities, and provide quality service, but also to make recommendations for resources and assistance my clients may not be aware of otherwise.”
