Mobility retailer Ross Care Independent Living has opened up a new store which will have a senior occupational therapist in-store available for professional clinical advice.
In addition to OT advice, the mobility shop will provide a large range of scooters, specialist seating and wheelchairs among a host of smaller aids for “almost every conceivable scenario”.
The new shop in Oldham will provide both supplies and support and will work closely with local authorities in the area to support the provision of health and social care equipment.
“In response, Ross Care has made a significant investment in the area to establish a professional and responsible outlet to support this,” a spokesperson for Ross Care told the Oldham Evening Chronicle.
They continued: “It is a unique facility, developed in consultation with members of the local council and disability action groups. Items range from making everyday activities easier such as preparing food and bathing, through to supporting dementia and sensory loss.”
The mobility shop was opened by Oldham mayor, Councillor Shadab Qumer, and mayoress, Sobia Arshi.
The pair cut the ribbon at Ross Care Independent Living at the Keppell Health Centre. Age UK Oldham and Rochdale and District Disability Action Group also attended the ceremony.
Ross Care already has stores in Ellesmere Port, Leeds and Sunderland.
