Recare Ltd was founded by Richard and Tina Holland-Oakes in 2008. From what can only be explained as a difficult beginning, getting the business started in the height of the national recession, naturally, this was going to be an achievement in itself to get off the ground let alone for it to be a success. Alas, this is exactly what happened.
The Recare team are proud to have grown and ultimately to have been able to maintain as one of the most reputable and awarded mobility and rehabilitation companies supplying clients in the UK. Recare being initiated by the Holland-Oakes family has always had the ultimate goal to maintain their family values, this factor being regardless of the progression Recare achieves throughout the years. This is something that is vital with a business in the rehabilitation and mobility industry, a first-hand friendly experience, with regardless how many staff or employees that join, we endeavour to ensure the company ethos is maintained throughout all services we provide. Ultimately the summary of this ethos is; the customer always comes first, there is always a first-hand friendly face here on the team to help and advise, this is offered by everyone; from our office staff to our engineers and consultants.

This can range from your elderly relative having an aid to help pulling their socks up, to heading safely down the stairs for their cup of tea on their recently fitted stairlift, getting their cup of tea that they can transport safely on a stable trolley, to go and relax to watch the news on their customised reclining chair.
