BES Rehab raises funds for mail order division BES Rehab has raised a £100,000 loan on Crowd2Fund.com with plans to expand a new mail order division to better reach people living with dementia and learning difficulties.

B

ES Rehab recently acquired mail order company and e-commerce platform Activities to Share this year, specialising in selling products to people who work with those living with dementia and learning difficulties. According to the company, Activities to Share provides a new route to market for BES, allowing them to reach families and their relatives directly as opposed selling indirectly to end-users through the NHS and local care homes. BES Rehab founder Greg Amos commented: “The funds raised will be directed towards helping families be aware of the options of tools and gifts for elderly relatives with the desire to connect with the younger generation while coping with the limitations dementia brings.” Awareness of the brand will now be built through social media, training conferences and direct mail. www.besrehab.net
