Located in Handsworth, Sheffield, our Orgreave store is nestled in the Orgreave industrial estate. It’s our second Sheffield mobility shop, the other one being at Gleadless. Unlike our Gleadless store- or any of our other three stores- the Orgreave site also has a car adaptations garage. Whilst we’ve had a site on this industrial estate since 2009, we only moved into our current building (just a stone’s throw from our old premises) in 2021.
With its own car park, its easy to access. There’s plenty of space to test drive mobility scooters or a powered wheelchair. Both are available on the Motability scheme for those who qualify. Using this scheme, customers can spread the cost of their motorised equipment, with servicing, repairs and aftercare included! It also extends to bigger ‘motors’. Our car adaptations garage on the site can customise new and existing vehicles to make them work better for you- whether that’s making them easier to drive or transport your mobility equipment.
From small, handy gadgets like the ‘Coin Key’ (a token that fits in to the pound coin slot of a shopping trolley, but with an easy-to-grip handle to make it easier to grasp), to king-size beds, the friendly customer advisors can find the mobility solution for you.
Home-wise, as well as beds, there’s lots of products to make your home work better for you. From the bathroom to the kitchen, you’ll find what you need. One of our favourites is the CCN Bathlift that allows people to continue using their bath even when getting in and out becomes tricky. We also love the Uccello Tipping Kettle that guarantees pouring hot water confidently and safely every time.
Where better to enjoy your cuppa than in a comfy chair with your feet up. In the Orgreave showroom, you’ll find a wide range of high-seated and rise and recline chairs. Pick from different fabrics and leathers, and whether it’s a single, dual or quad-motor riser recliner.
If you’ve already looked at the seating range on our website, you might have seen that not all of our chairs are available to buy online. That’s because we’d prefer our customers to be sure they’ve got the right chair for them. Buying the wrong chair- or any mobility product- can sometimes do more harm than good. That’s why it’s a good idea to come and visit our Orgreave store, or any of our others that might be more local to you.
Similarly, we’ve got a great range of self-propelled (the user moves themselves along) and transit (pushed by an attendant) wheelchairs in this store. Again, some are available to buy online, but others require an assessment before buying. This is because we’re trusted member of the British Healthcare Trades Association and so follow their ethical policies. These wheelchairs can only be bought in stores or we can arrange for our wheelchair, seating and scooter specialist, Martin, to carry out a home visit!
In fact, we’ve got a range of specialists based at our Orgreave Head Office who can visit your home to carry out an assessment. Simon can call round to measure up and discuss the best stairlift options, whilst Richard’s job is to find access solutions such as modular ramp systems and outdoor lifts.
To arrange a home assessment, call 0114 2293388. Or to try out some of our large selection of independent living aids, call in to our Orgreave showroom Monday-Saturday between 10am and 4pm.
