An Essex-based home care provider will make its first foray into the mobility market later this month when it launches its own shop specialising in dementia products.
Elias Care will open its retail unit in just over a week and will sell items such as puzzles for people with dementia, alongside mobility aids and scooters in an effort to complement the current home care service it offers.
The store in Epping will feature a dedicated area where community groups and residents can hold meetings to share experiences of caring for people living with dementia, Parkinson’s and strokes.
Elias Care is run by Jennifer Biggins, who has worked in the care industry for a decade. She hopes the shop will allow end-users to access products they would not normally be able to get through social services.
Biggins hopes that Elias will be able to provide solutions not readily available on the high street. The closest mobility shop to Elias’ new outfit is in Harlow.
The company is holding a special launch party on Tuesday 26 March where it will invite residents to come and see the new store and the products for themselves.
