Our History

The Garvey Family Have Served Cape Cod since 1983

In 1991, recognizing the growing need for medical equipment and supplies, Jim founded West Gate Home Medical Equipment. In 2002, Jim brought the Apothecare concept of specialized pharmaceutical care to the community. Apothecare of Cape Cod and West Gate Home Medical Equipment have been providing goods and services to the community of Cape Cod since this time. Our goal is to assist the residents of our community to maintain health, safety, and independence in whatever setting they have chosen, be it home, assisted living, etc. We work closely with area physicians, nursing agencies, hospices, and other health care agencies to ensure continued and uninterrupted care throughout a client's illness and recuperation.

Today, Jim’s children, Ryan Garvey and Julie Garvey, have joined the family mission of providing quality goods and services to residents of the Cape Cod community. Our experienced staff includes pharmacists, respiratory therapists, registered nurses, assistive technology professionals and certified fitters. Our office staff is highly trained in medical billing, and can assist you step by step through the sometimes confusing process of insurance reimbursement. We are here as a resource to you and your loved ones, for all things home health related.
