President Obama’s DAV Convention Speech Mirrors MaxiAids’ Longstanding Commitment to Supporting American Veterans

This past Saturday, the President and Mrs. Obama spoke at the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) National Convention in Orlando, FL.

Among the key points President Obama stressed in his speech were: resources for aiding America’s veterans must continue to remain available, healthcare for veterans must be complete and easily accessible, and veterans must be given every opportunity to achieve success both in the workplace and in the classroom.

We at MaxiAids Products for Independent Living couldn’t agree more.

Hundreds of thousands of American veterans, either due to injuries resulting from their military service or in the natural course of aging, require - or at least can benefit from - the specialized products MaxiAids distributes.

MaxiAids supplies products for the blind, low vision, deaf, hard of hearing and those with special needs. Our product line includes over 8,000 items such as talking products, magnifiers, canes, Braille items, large print books, alerting and assistive listening devices, vibrating alarms, personal amplifiers, wheelchairs and much more.

Over the past three decades, serving the Veteran’s Administration has been an important focus for MaxiAids, so much so that we have a department dedicated solely to handling inquiries, product questions and orders from the VA.

Plus, with low VA contract pricing, more assistive products get into the hands of the veterans who truly need them. And in light of recent difficult economic climate and ongoing budget cuts, pricing has become more critical than ever.

In the end, our goal is to support our veterans by providing them with the products they need to live more healthy, active and independent lives. We are proud and honored to be the place where the VA shops for assistive products.
