Aire walk-in shower is Companion's most versatile

December 2016


At the start of a new year many people start thinking about the things they can do to make their lives happier and healthier. For some this may mean the start of a new exercise regime or a promise to spend more time with the family. For others it’s an opportunity to think about how their home can be adapted to cope with their mobility challenges.

Walk-in showers are ideal for people struggling to get in and out of the bath who want to be confident they can continue to bathe independently.

Whatever the reason a soak in the tub is no longer a pleasure, Companion Bathing can help you feel happier - and more confident – about performing your daily routine in an environment that’s adapted to suit your individual mobility challenges and style preferences.

Our British-manufactured Aire walk-in shower has a clean white finish and a whole host of options to create a bathing experience that’s tailored to an individual’s needs.

A choice of shower tray size and frosted or clear screens and doors are just some of the options that make the Aire one of the most versatile in our range. It can be installed in most bathrooms, replacing an existing bath to create a spacious showering area with a low level entrance and slip-resistant base.

Accessories designed to give bathers the ability to use the bathroom confidently on their own include shower seats and drop down or grab rails. And for a complete bathroom makeover, Companion also provides sanitaryware and thermostatically controlled mixer or electric showers, as well as vanity units and easy to keep clean wallboards and flooring in a range of colours.
Companion’s fully managed bathroom design and installation service includes a free in-house survey carried out by our friendly team of experienced professionals. To find out more, call 0800 756 2844.

A message from Handicare about our response to COVID-19Close

During these unprecedented times, Handicare remains motivated to provide solutions and support to increase the independence of the physically challenged or elderly, to enable them to live an active life, and to facilitate for their care providers and family.

As we navigate through the Coronavirus pandemic we are acutely aware of the challenges we all face, particularly our older customers and those at increased risk of the illness.

Circumstances are changing rapidly. However, we have a robust supply chain andbusiness continuity plans which we’re reviewing regularly in conjunction with the advice and guidance from the government and public health authorities.

We’re doing everything we can to safeguard our employees, suppliers, partners and customers.

We’re prioritising our ability to keep our factories operational and our teams motivated and mobilised to deliver the service level standards you expect from Handicare.

We’ve tightened our health and hygiene protocols for all our employees and taken steps to keep our factories up and running so that we can maintain ‘business as usual’ as the situation develops.

Many of our office-based employees are working from home thanks to the hard work and swift preparations by our teams. Efforts are on-going to extend remote working to as many people as possible according to priorities and to reduce the risks for people who remain on-site as well as our field-based teams.

Other steps we’re taking include:

We currently have no major challenges. We will continue to supply and maintain our much-needed products and services for the many vulnerable people who are completely dependent on them to make their everyday life easier. We take our responsibility seriously for supporting them, particularly at a time when they’re feeling very worried about the risk to their health of contact with strangers in their homes.

Let us all stay safe and take the necessary precautions to combat this virus.

Can we help you?

The government and the NHS are currently prioritising initiatives to free up hospital beds which can be used for patients who are unwell with COVID-19. The NHS is therefore keen to discharge patients who are well enough to go home if they have the necessary equipment to assist them.

Handicare has a large team of fully qualified surveyors who are standing by to assist by carrying out stairlift and patient handling assessments. We are keen to offer this service as it will help to free up hospital beds.
