Who we are


Care & Independence provide a range of products that are designed to aid mobility, independence and improve daily life for the elderly and less able.

With extensive knowledge, expertise and over 30 years’ experience, we strive to provide the best advice and equipment to suit everyone’s needs and requirements. We are highly recommended by leading clinical experts, the NHS and Social Services.

Our product range comprises a wide variety of sling types to help in the moving & handling of patients in hospitals, nursing homes and home environments, as well as a full range of showering and bathing products.

We also offer free on-site or remote assessments that gives you and your team the confidence to provide the right equipment for the correct situation.

Our company ethos is ‘Improving Lives’ and all of the products that we provide are designed to help improve the daily life for those less able and whom are at the heart of everything we do.

“As a Paediatric Manual Handling Adviser I regularly choose the GLOVE Airflow sling for my clients. It offers a good hoisting position even for the clients who use excessive extensor patterns of movement. It is simple for staff to use due to the simple loop system design which decreases the risk of user error. Children also think it’s a great sling as it is comfortable and they feel safe.”

Our four pillars

There are four elements to our service that set us apart from our competitors;

Providing the best mobility solutions can only be achieved by fully understanding the needs of everyone involved. Only once we have completed our free assessment working alongside you as partners, will we make our recommendations.

As a manufacturer we adapt our products to fit individual patient needs. Because we design and build our own equipment we can provide the very best mobility solutions perfectly suited to you.

From initial enquiry through to active use, we provide fast and effective support throughout the customer journey, so you’ll have total peace of mind at all times.

The best mobility solutions are only as good as their operators so we provide free training and support for OTs and care givers to ensure you get maximum benefit from our solutions.
