About Lift & Care Systems

Family Owned & Operated for Over 28 Years

Dave Austin established Lift & Care Systems, Inc. in 1993 to distribute the famous Handi-Move International product line of patient lift systems, known as SureHands. Over the years we’ve expanded our durable medical equipment product line to better serve our customers to bring the highest quality of life to users and their caregivers.

We only service the following states: Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut

Lift & Care Systems is located in southeastern Massachusetts in the quaint town of Lakeville. We cater to residential homes, semi-professional homes such as group homes and day programs, and professional institutions such as nursing homes, hospitals, and schools. We are also the exclusive distributors of the SureHands patient lift systems in three states: Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.

Physical and Emotional Benefits

Ours is a family-owned business, but even more important, we treat our customers like family. We will meet with you in your home, place of work, listen to your needs, and collectively come up with the best solution for lifetime use.

Our users and caregivers teach us about many levels and degrees of self-determined quality of life. We learn more about life than our clients will ever realize. Because of this, we come to our users and caregivers with a level of compassion that does not allow for overselling; a unique quality among home medical equipment companies.

We offer the patented SureHands patient lift systems–as well as all of our other durable medical equipment (DME) products–to both private and professional markets while keeping this one single goal in mind:

Bring the highest quality of life to the user and their caregivers.

In many cases, our products and services can actually reduce the number of assistants and caregivers necessary for the user’s care. This alleviates financial burdens for both users and institutions, minimizes and eliminates physical discomfort among many caregivers, instills confidence in the users, as well as enhances the quality of life for both users and care providers.

To discuss how we might help you achieve the highest quality of life call 508-947-3304 or schedule a free, no-obligation, no-pressure consultation.
