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 includes hoists and slings 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 assessments that gives you and your team the confidence to provide the right equipment for the correct situation.

With our own installation and servicing teams, Care & Independence offers a one-stop-shop for clients from initial enquiry, design, specification and installation through to the ongoing maintenance of the equipment in use. A wide selection of our products include installation and the option of additional planned preventative maintenance.

Our clients are at the heart of everything we do, and all of the products that we provide are designed to improve their daily life. Our ethos is ‘Improving Lives’.

“As a Paediatric Manual Handling Adviser I regularly choose the AIRFLOW GLOVE 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 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.

We provide fast and effective support throughout the lifecycle of the product. With full installation and back up services you’ll have total peace of mind at all times.

The best mobility solutions are only as good as their operators, so we make sure that all our installations come with the very highest level of training and support. This ensures you get maximum benefit from our solutions.
