Senior Savings

A quick Internet search for “senior discounts” leads to many pages with long lists of businesses that offer them. But many of those lists are outdated, or claim to offer a discount for all stores when it’s really just a local business that provides that coupon. In an effort to get more accurate information, TotalHomeCareSupplies.com has checked on all the businesses mentioned below. If the information wasn’t available on the company’s website, we reached out to them via social media. We can’t guarantee any of these offers, but we have tried our best to create an accurate list. Be sure to bookmark this page as we will be adding more discounts as we find them!

And don’t forget, you can find great savings on TotalHomeCareSupplies.com, no matter your age! Check out our Promotions page for our current coupons.
