Shipping Policy


NorthShore Care is dedicated to getting your order to you as quickly and discreetly as possible. With the exception of US Postal shipments, if you order by 7pm Central time Monday - Friday and your package will ship same day.

Discreet Home Delivery

All orders from NorthShore Care Supply ship in plain, unmarked boxes or envelopes to maintain your privacy. Even the shipping label does not mention medical supplies. The return address states our parent company name of "Samela, Inc./NorthShore".

Fast, Reliable Shipping

Shipping Time: Most orders received Monday - Friday before 7pm will ship the same day, provided the product ordered is in-stock. Orders placed after 7pm Friday through Sunday, or on holidays, will ship on the next business day. You may receive notification of orders being processed and shipping tracking numbers on weekends and holidays, even though they will physically ship the next business day.

We cannot guarantee when an order will arrive. Consider any shipping or transit time offered to you as an estimate. We encourage you to order in a timely fashion to avoid delays caused by shipping or product availability. Most items ship from our warehouse in Green Oaks, Illinois (ZIP 60048).

For certain items or promotions, Free Ground Delivery may be offered through the use of a specified coupon code. Use of the coupon code online or over the phone is required to receive this promotion. When using valid coupon, free shipping only applies to ground shipping to locations within the 48 contiguous states. We reserve the right to bill additional funds if a free shipping coupon is used with a delivery location outside the contiguous US or in any other invalid or unauthorized manner. Most orders with free ground delivery ship via FedEx Ground. However, we reserve the right to ship via alternate means at our discretion.
