SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Beacon Home Care is transitioning its medical equipment and supplies business to Alick’s Home Medical Equipment by the end of the month, according to the South Bend Tribune. The companies, which are both based here, are calling the change a “joint venture,” the newspaper says. Beacon Home Care will retain its nursing, therapy, home health aide and other services. “We are focusing our energies on what Beacon does best,” Heidi Prescott, a spokeswoman for Beacon Home Care told the Tribune. “Home medical equipment is what Alick’s does best.” The 35 employees affected by the change have been offered positions at Alick’s, according to the newspaper. Alick’s also has locations in Elkhart, Plymouth, Michigan City and Mishawaka. The family owned business offers a full line of HME, including hospital beds, scooters, lift chairs and respiratory equipment.
