Mobility and handicap specialists

SINCE SULCARE, the specialist for mobility and handicap, was founded in May 2006 and the Loulé headquarters were established to service the Algarve, a great deal has happened.

Many residents and doctors, and also hotels and real estate managements are using the rental service of wheelchairs, scooters, ramps and other mobility aids. This service offers residents and tourists greater mobility and access to their house or rented holiday accommodation, and is available across the Algarve.

Since the beginning of 2007, SulCare has become an authorised dealer for UK manufactured BisonBede stair lifts, one of the top-selling stair lifts in Europe. SulCare is trained and equipped to install reliable stair lifts for the interior or the exterior, and also provides a maintenance service.

Thomas Decker of Sulcare believes that stair lifts are particularly important in the home to make life easier and more mobile.

Many hotels and owners of rented accommodation are catering to older guests over the age of 55, and a favourite has become the innovative elevated bed system.

SulCare supports the Associação Portuguesa de Doentes de Parkinson (Parkinson’s disease association) in Portimão, and staff are expert advisors and providers of auxiliary products to make those less mobile more comfortable in their daily lives. The English and Portuguese speaking organisation cares for sufferers and relatives of Parkinson disease, in terms of counselling and offering courses with different mobility exercises.

SulCare’s managers, Thomas Decker and Thomas Wirth, are looking forward to the future as more awareness about the needs of those less mobile are defined and, in Portugal, the issue of accessible life finds more and more attention.
