As the number of older people in our population continues to rise exponentially, the healthcare sector is growing and adapting to meet demand. With more than 20,000 registered care homes across the UK, residential care services play a huge part in addressing the needs of later life.
Living in a care home or sheltered housing doesn’t have to mean life in one place. Increasingly social care providers are facilitating interaction with the surrounding community. Whether it’s journeys for essential medical appointments or an outing to a local place of interest, care home operators are increasingly seeking to offer transport opportunities as part of their overall care package.
For many operators, flexibility is key – one trip might be with a wheelchair user, the next with several able-bodied residents. Allied’s accessible vehicles are carefully designed to provide comfortable transport solutions which address the needs of both disabled and able-bodied users. Our vehicles are available to buy, lease or hire too, providing short and long term options to work around the needs of your business.
