About Us

We're Acticare... a story that's been in the making since 2006.

We help Care Homes throughout the UK to simplify their purchasing of day-to-day necessities, including consumables, equipment, and furniture.

Our aim is to ensure that you are delighted with your experience with us. We are motivated by the smiles from your residents, the cheery chatter from your carers, and the happy atmosphere in Care Homes like yours. We know that these things are just as important to you, and that’s why we strive to give you peace of mind so that you have the time to enjoy them.

Whether you’re an independent Care Home or a group of Care Homes, our extensive stock capacity and reliable logistics are at your disposal.

Our Story

Founded by Phil Boyman as Active Rehab Equipment in 2006, we specialised in pressure-relieving products for the elderly and disabled. From the outset Phil focused on straightforward and reliable communication, quickly gaining trust and a good reputation in the marketplace. In 2007 we expanded our product range by acquiring the mobility and nursing products store Morecare, based in Devizes, Wiltshire.  

As our journey continued, we reached a point in 2017 where the name Active Rehab Equipment no longer represented who we had become and what we were doing. We needed an identity that suited our culture and the experience we offered – that’s when Acticare was born. 

Today we operate from our second purpose-built premises designed for optimum operational efficiency, allowing us to despatch and deliver orders in full and on time*. We remain a family-owned and operated business, with the next generation now leading the company.  

Our journey and sustainable success continue to be defined by our culture, our flexibility, and our people. We’re not striving to be the biggest player in this market, we simply want to be the best, and we want every Care Home in the UK to know that we’re here to help when you need us.

*Delivered In Full and On Time (DIFOT) is a companywide KPI we measure weekly to monitor our delivery success. We’re happy for you to see how we’re performing, so speak to us to find out what our most recent results are.
