Lowell Kuck is making it his mission to help others "sleep well", as his business, Sleep Well Adjustable Beds, provides power foundation beds plus in-home high/low medical beds, which have only been available to facilities in the past. Kuck and his wife, Diane, settled north of Decorah near Highlandville almost nine years ago. They are no strangers to home-based businesses, as they also grow commercial garlic seed and Diane is a quilt pattern designer.
After asking each other numerous times, "Did you sleep well last night?", they realized that that would be a perfect name for their business. "I am really excited about this new retail business model," said Kuck. "Consumers don't know what type of bed to purchase when medical needs arise, when they have a chronic condition, or when they are sleep deprived. In the past they had no options but a regular flat bed. I offer high/low, head up/foot up adjustable beds with numerous options."
"It is important that consumers 'try before they buy'," Kuck continued. "I am bringing the beds to local communities so consumers can see them, lie in them, ask questions and understand how they work." He also takes appointments to visit his showroom.
Most rewarding to Kuck in his new business is the fact that he is a problem solver, and he says he feels honored to help find solutions for someone to sleep well. His greatest challenge, however, lies in educating people about the benefits of the beds he offers. "Consumers have not seen a business like ours before, because there hasn't been, so we have to educate them that we have options for them to get a restful sleep and to help them care for their loved ones. Our greatest challenge is spreading the word."
Many have shared with Kuck that they are sleeping in a recliner or have pain from previous sports injuries, sleep apnea, acid reflux; all kinds of chronic conditions. "Most people do not take their lack of restful sleep very seriously," says Kuck. When it comes to sleeping in a flat bed or a recliner, Kuck explains, "Laying on your back locks your knees and that puts a strain on your back, tightens your lower body muscles and reduces the ability of blood to flow freely. My adjustable beds stop that from happening because you can raise the foot end of the bed."
In addition to being able to raise both the head and feet areas, Sleep Well Adjustable Beds also has beds that have wave massage and a button to push for a snoring partner. Kuck says two Twin XL beds form a King size when attached together.
MC Healthcare is giving Kuck the opportunity to be the first in the nation to offer its line of medical beds made in North America to the retail market. Before, they were only allowed to be sold to facilities. These beds can adjust to heights of eight to 31 inches, allowing for ease in individual transferring or care by family, caregivers or health care aides.
All Sleep Well Adjustable Beds include a cloth inner-spring mattress custom made by a manufacturer in Rochester, MN. Beds are also available with specialty therapeutic mattresses for those with skin issues that can lead to bed sores. Some models are stocked for immediate delivery, and custom orders are also available.
"I know this industry and would love to assist you in finding the right bed for you to sleep well," summarizes Kuck. "I am also the person who answers the phone, so if you ever have questions or need service I will be there for you."
Sleep Well Adjustable Beds is featuring its products at an open house event Thursday and Friday, June 5-6, from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day at the Farmers & Merchants Savings Bank Community Room in Waukon. Appointments can also be made to visit their showroom by calling 563-419-2501. Additional information can also be found in the advertisement featured below on this same page.
