Scottish exhibition will appeal to elderly and disabled people

Posted on January 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Organisers say Independent Living Scotland will break new ground when it returns to the SECC in the European Year of the Disabled Person because there will be a wider range of products on offer than ever before. The two-day show on April 2 and 3 is designed to serve the information needs of disabled and elderly people, and healthcare professionals. With three months still to go, more than 90 exhibitors have already reserved their places. Head of therapy Briony Mansell-Lewis said organisers were very pleased with the response and the long list of new exhibitors to Scotland this year. “Between them they are able to offer a vast range of products and we are confident the show will have huge appeal for disabled and elderly people,” Ms Mansell-Lewis said. “The show ­ the only one of its kind in Scotland ­ will also give healthcare professionals the chance to keep up to date with the very latest equipment and services and the free seminars will contain many topics of special interest to them.” Public information
