Handicare is a global market leader in offering solutions and support that increase the independence of the physically challenged and older people. Our goal is to enable them to live an active life on their terms, and to make everyday life easier for them, their family and their care providers.
Handicare’s UK division was established in 2010 following its acquisition of stairlift manufacturers Minivator and Freelift. Since then, the UK operation has continued to build on firm foundations to become one of the nation’s leading providers of stairlifts and accessible bathrooms. We manufacture stairlifts and service all areas of the marketplace from our site in the West Midlands. We continually improve our offer: locally through our network of high street retail partners including mobility dealers and shops; through local authorities; and as a national brand supplying direct to customers. We also export our stairlifts to countries including the UK, China and Australia.
We have worked with leading charity for the elderly Age UK for over 12 years providing Age UK Stairlifts and Age UK Easy Bathing in association with Age UK Trading CIC. This relationship has helped to improve how our team operates by better understanding the needs of older people, their families and carers. We strive to make everyday life easier for our customers and offer a fair service, even recommending they investigate other suppliers and options; our desire is to find the best solution for them.
