Scottish adult social care provider expands into mobility retail with shop launch
A Scottish-based provider of adult social care to thousands of people across Aberdeen has launched its first retail outlet, selling a range of mobility and aids to daily living products from the Hillylands Independent Living Centre in Aberdeen.
Bon Accord Care, a local authority trading company, launched the shop on the 16th April, with Lord Provost of Aberdeen Barney Crockett officially opening the retail space.
The company operates rehabilitation, care at home, housing support, residential care, community responder service, and occupational therapy services, as well as providing telecare equipment and adaptations.
The BACShop at Hillylands is the organisation’s first physical retail space and will now sell equipment to help individuals maintain their independence at home, including specialist seating rise recliner chairs, walking aids, adapted tableware, wheelchairs, wheelchair accessories and more.
In addition to the new BACShop, the Hillylands Independent Living Centre also has a profiling bed, stairlift, a wash/dry toilet and hoists for assessment purposes, with onsite occupational therapists helping identify people’s needs for equipment and adaptions.
