CVS Introduces New Line of “Functional and Stylish” Home Health Products That Make Everyday Living More Accessible for Aging Adults and People with Disabilities


Pharmacy giant CVS Pharmacy announced this week by press release the introduction of six home care products developed in collaboration with Design by Michael Graves. The modernized collection was developed for aging adults, caregivers and people with disabilities; the goal was to help them lead fuller, more independent lives by facilitating self-care. Products include analog assistive technology such as canes, walkers, shower chairs and commodes.

“There will be more than 70 million Americans age 65 and older by 2030, along with millions of caregivers and other customers who will need these types of products due to illness or during recovering from an accident,” said Brenda Lord, vice president of Store Brands. at CVS Health, in the company’s press release. “By filling an unmet need for functional yet beautifully designed products, we aim to help improve the daily lives of those who rely on these tools and are looking for a more premium and personalized market offering.”

CVS noted in the announcement that the collection was designed after “extensive research” with users, caregivers and clinicians. The information collected showed that customers prefer home health products that improve usability while being aesthetically pleasing and minimalist in style. The collection represents “the company’s commitment to transforming healthcare into a more personalized experience through new technologies and innovations that can help improve the quality of everyday life.”

This week’s news about new home health products comes months after CVS announced the release of Spoken Rx, a CVS app feature that makes reading medical labels more accessible to blind and visually impaired people. It was also the result of a collaborative effort, this one with the American Council for the Blind.

CVS says “most” new home health products are now available for purchase on the company’s website. They will hit the shelves of more than 6,000 CVS Pharmacy retail stores nationwide starting in March.
