We love sharing with you all what our customers say about the service they receive at Thistle Help.
When we received this email the other night, we were absolutely bursting with pride to say the least!
I would like to record my thanks and appreciation for your company’s splendid assistants and their courteousness when purchasing a Riser/Recliner chair. Your premises were like an Aladdin’s Cave with such a huge variety of styles and colours.
Donna Pepworth assisted me to try-out and decide which chair would be suitable for my purpose. I was relaxed, unrushed, offered plenty time and her expert help to choose which chair would be best for my personal needs. I was very grateful that there was no promotive selling.
Donna, very carefully, explained the administrative procedure, covered the finance arrangement, signatures, and delivery schedule. She is an asset to your company.
The office phoned a couple of days before delivery to confirm that I would be at home on that day.
On delivery day I got another phone call to confirm I was at home. Thereafter, within an hour it was delivered. Two very professional men brought the chair, checked it out, plugged it in and demonstrated the controls. Their manner was most considerate and helpful…creditable representatives for your company.
It has been a great pleasure doing business with you, thanks.

Christmas Shopping Experience at Greenan Manor Care Home, Ayr

We recently visited Greenan Manor Care Home in Ayr to offer a Christmas Shopping Experience for the residents and relatives. It was a great day and the residents loved shopping for shoes, slippers, hosiery and much more from the comfort of their own home. There was Christmas tunes playing, we had our Christmas jumpers on and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

If this is something your care home would be interested in, please call Laura on 01294 313369 for more information.

We love how our customers feel at ease and welcome when they visit our showrooms. Without our customers, we wouldn’t have Thistle Help Limited.

We are excited to be stocking the new Power Push Wheelchair from One Rehab in both our showrooms!

We regularly have customers visiting to our showrooms who require an occasional use wheelchair. In some circumstances­, the attendant who would be pushing the wheelchair would find it difficult to do so. This is when we would recommend a power assisted wheelchair to make things a little easier on them.

The Power Push Wheelchair is a revolutionary power assisted wheelchair that makes manoeuvring around a lot easier! It removes all the strain and effort for the attendant pushing. It has an exceptionally lightweight lithium battery and aluminium frame and is fast and easy to fold for transportation and storage. It has a unique patented design which allows the motor to match the attendants needs from slow to fast walking speed. This product is really simple to use when steering, power driving and reversing.

The efficient brushless ‘free-rolling’ motor guarantees many hours of use from a single charge allowing you to get out and about much easier. The Power Assist really is the complete mobility solution which includes wheelchair, battery, and charger.

The Power Push from One Rehab comes with either the Gravity Lite wheelchair (max user weight 100kg) or the Sonic Plus Wheelchair (max user weight 125kg). This really is the ideal solution if are unable to use a powerchair but need a wheelchair to get around in that will assist the attendant pushing the chair as well.

Contact our team today to find out more information or to arrange a demonstration on 01294 313369 or 01563 542838.
