NAPLES, Fla., Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- November is National Family Caregivers month. According to a recent study, approximately 39.8 million family caregivers provide care for adults with disabilities or illnesses (16.6% Americans). Each day, family caregivers are under a tremendous amount of stress due to financial burdens, time constraints and other issues. At Home™ Viniferamine ® skin care kits were created by D. Elizabeth McCord PhD, FAPWCA with the idea of helping family caregivers provide quality, hospital-grade skin care to their loved ones at home. To facilitate caregiver ease and convenience, At Home™ Viniferamine ® skin care kits are available in the first aid aisle of over 3,800 CVS Pharmacy locations. They are also available online at CVS.com.
Eight skin care kits were created by Dr. McCord to help caregivers provide skin and wound care to their loved ones to help avoid stressful and expensive hospital readmissions. The kits include specialized products, as well as educational booklets that allow caregivers to continue skin and wound care treatment protocols used in care facilities. Caregivers frequently do not have access to skin and wound care products their loved ones require after discharge, and out-of-pocket expenses are a major hurdle. To help make hospital-grade skin and wound care more available and affordable, these easy-to-use kits are reasonably priced below twenty dollars per kit. Specific skin care issues are addressed by each kit, including diabetic skin care, chronic dry skin care, fragile skin bruising care and antifungal skin care. The kits include two specialized products for each skin care need, and the front of the cartons display a clinical image to help caregivers recognize the specific issue addressed by the kit. The kits contain products that cleanse, moisturize and protect skin. The potent small molecule ingredients provide beneficial skin strengthening nutrition to help caregiver's loved ones avoid serious infections and wounds that can lead to hospital readmissions.
