B.E.S. brings world leading mobility and daily living products to the NHS to help provide the highest quality of care for their patients. The aim of this investment is to spread awareness and expand BES’ 'Activities to Share' division, making its products accessible outside of the NHS to people of all ages and who are affected by dementia or learning difficulties. These products can help connect young people and the elderly by enabling interaction and communication, thus bringing generations together.

BES’ core ideology is to enable better quality of life and independent living through its innovative solutions.

BES Rehab has been introducing innovative products to the UK for over two decades, supporting clinicians and healthcare professional who are responsible for prescribing equipment to individuals with disabilities. Through its divisions – Rehab, Decon, Healthcare, the company provides market-leading solutions and healthcare technologies sourced from around the world to improve the health directly or indirectly of individuals across the UK.

With over 1.5 million people having learning disabilities, and just under 1 million suffering from Dementia, BES’ Managing Director, Dr Barend ter Haar decided to find solutions that could cater to these needs. He came across Activities to Share, a company established in the Care Homes and Nursing Homes sector that provides activities, games, memory and interactive products, to help cope with the limitations of Dementia.

BES acquired Activities to Share, and is now looking for funding to extend the company’s scope, as so many of these products are just as applicable to people of all ages, and those with learning disabilities. With this funding, Dr ter Haar’s vision is to reach individuals and their families directly, and spread awareness of products that are made accessible in the UK through Activities to Share.

The gap between generations is getting bigger. These products can help connect young people and their elderly relatives by enabling interaction and communication. BES has great plans of spreading brand awareness through Social Media, Direct Mail, Website, E-commerce, Conferences, and training seminars open to all.
