A Fantastic 2019 for Ableworld!

This entry was posted in General December 31, 2019

As 2019 comes to a close we wanted to celebrate and share with you some of our favourite Ableworld moments from the past year. 

In 2019 we opened 2 new Ableworld stores in Stafford and Christchurch, both in great locations close to our existing regions. We also re-located 3 of our existing stores to bigger and better premises in Congleton, Gloucester and Llandudno, allowing our customers to visit and shop a larger range of products in more comfortable space.

We increased our vast product ranges again this year, and brought in many new products that have already proven popular with our customers. We are continuously looking to develop our product ranges, and already have some exciting new ideas for the coming year.

At Ableworld we achieved 2 prestigious Awards in 2019, being awarded the AMP Dealer of the Year UK, and the Handicare Prestige Partner Award, both of which are great industry recognitions and are a credit to the whole company. We had numerous shortlistings for the AMP Awards, including our Bournemouth store for Dealer of the Year South, and Craig DeGroote from our Rhyl store for 'Store Manager of the Year'. Throughout the year we have also regularly received 5-star feedback from happy customers for all of our stores, highlighting that our teams are giving first class customer service. 

As well as often being involved in numerous charity days, sponsorships and cake sales, our stores have been attending many local events and have made a difference to so many people in many local communities. We hope we can work closer with local care homes, nurseries and charities in the upcoming year.

We have a really exciting year lined up as we enter 2020, including new store launches, big store birthdays and lots of unique new products to enter our stores.

We hope you have an enjoyable New Year period, and wish you all the very best for 2020. We look forward to seeing you in an Ableworld store in the New Year!

We are sad to hear of the recent closure of 2 local mobility stores close to the Christchurch and Bournemouth Area. All Mobility on Wick Lane, and Lifestyle and Mobility (Wessex Mobility) in Boscombe have recently closed their doors to customers.

We appreciate that many customers shopping for mobility aids, particularly over the Christmas period may be worried about where to ask for mobility advice. We can reassure you that our friendly teams at our Ableworld Christchurch and Ableworld Bournemouth stores are all fully trained to offer free and personal advice when it comes to shopping for mobility aids, and would be more than happy to help out.

Our Bournemouth and Christchurch teams will be able to help you no matter what mobility aid is required. It could be you need a simple pill organiser for a loved one, or a stairlift to help you get up and down the stairs. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff will be ready to help you find items designed to make your life more comfortable whilst also keeping you independent.

Our Engineering team are also on hand to help with any repair or servicing work to mobility aids, such as on Mobility scooters, Wheelchairs and Powerchairs.

We also have an extensive Stairlift department, where our engineers can install straight and curved stairlifts to many types of staircases.

Christmas Gift Ideas at Ableworld

This entry was posted in General December 6, 2019

Christmas is now only a few weeks away and we're sure that most of you are well into your Christmas present shopping. If you’re struggling with gift ideas this festive time, then let us give you a hand. At Ableworld we not only have a huge range of Disabled Aids for those special loved ones, but we also have special gift ideas that can be useful for everyone. Remember, the practical and useful presents are often the best received!

Our team of Santa’s elves have sourced a wide range of ideal Mobility gifts, to give you some gifting inspiration this Christmas.

Our top 5 Gift ideas to share with you are…

1. Telescopic Back Scratcher. Starting off with a perfect Stocking filler, our handy Telescopic Back Scratcher is ideal for reaching those places you usually can’t. It can be extended up to 70cm, making it ideal to be used by anyone! Available in a range of bright colours, and featuring an anti-slip cushion grip on its stainless steel arm, at £2.99 this is a steal this Christmas!

2. Wooden Lap Tray. Our attractive and functional lap tray will make breakfast in bed, writing and crafts easy and comfortable. It features a built in cushion beneath the tray, making it super comfortable when resting on your lap. It is available in two styles, either kittens or puppies, making this an ideal and practical gift for most.

3. Picture Dial Telephone. This gift is ideal for those loved ones who struggle to use a normal dial telephone, or have slight hearing troubles. The Picture Dial Telephone is easy to use as it has 6 direct programmable buttons where you can add a picture to the button, for easy association. It has an optical flashing alert for an incoming call, and is hearing aid compatible. This phone will give you and your loved ones added peace of mind over the festive period. 

4. Back Soother Support Cushion. Our Back Soother Support Cushion is a cosy fibre filled cushion which literally wraps round the users body and lumbar region to support the back. It is the ideal companion for use around the home or in the office, or it also works equally well on a wheelchair or a scooter. By providing comfort, warmth and support, this would be a very well received gift this Christmas.

5. Cheshire Deluxe Riser Recliner Chair. As our luxury gift idea this Christmas, we have chosen our loveable Cheshire Deluxe Riser Recliner chair. The Cheshire Deluxe is made in the UK, and is not only a luxury looking model, but it is extremely comfortable too. As well as having a dual motor for independent backrest and footrest operation, this luxury chair also comes with a tilt In Space feature. This chair will rise and tilt users to their feet by the touch of a button, taking away all pressure and effort from the user. Available in two designs, Button back or Waterfall back, and in various colour and pattern options. If you wanted to spoil a loved one this Christmas time then the Cheshire Deluxe is certainly a worthy option!

 

As well as our top 5 gift ideas, we have a whole selection of mobility aids to help with various needs. We have Mobility Scooters, Wheelchairs and Walking Sticks to help with mobility, as well as Kitchen Accessories, Steps & Stools and Grab Rails, to help with Household tasks. 

Our friendly staff span across our 35 UK stores, and are all on hand to help with any queries in store or over the phone. Take a look at where your closest Ableworld store is on our Store Locator. 

We hope to see you in store soon, and wishing you a lovely Christmas time with family and friends!
