About Silver Cross
As the population of people age 65 and over grows,
demand for healthcare-related products and services grows as well.
One of the most significant trends taking shape across Canada and the USA is the concept of “Aging in Place”. Defined as the desire to remain in one’s home and living independently rather than moving to assisted living facilities, Aging in Place is driving the growth of the in-home medical equipment business and specifically, the demand for residential accessibility and mobility equipment.
Silver Cross stores operate a healthcare business that sells, installs and maintains accessibility and mobility equipment for residential applications.
Operating out of protected, exclusive territories, each Silver Cross store partner will become the go-to source for health care-related lifting equipment including stair lifts, wheelchair lifts, vertical lifts and ceiling lifts,
as well as in-home mobility and accessibility equipment including ramps, bathtub and showers lifts. By providing these services, Silver Cross allows people with disabilities and other physical limitation challenges to remain in their homes, living independently.
Our franchisees derive tremendous satisfaction building a business while enhancing the lives of their clients.

Established in 1993 in Ontario, Canada, Bob Harvey, founder of Silver Cross, recognized
the growing future demand for home healthcare medical equipment.
Further, Bob recognized the demand and opportunity associated with recycled and accessibility equipment as a lower cost alternative for any installation applications. Combining these two opportunities and believing that local market knowledge,
service and support was the best way to build a business, Silver Cross began offering franchises in 1995. Today, Silver Cross has home medical and healthcare equipment franchises operating in Canada, and has served more than 200,000 contacts.
Silver Cross serves the aging population who choose to
live out their lives at their own home.
The vast majority of seniors want to age in place and thereby create huge opportunities for the products and services offered by Silver Cross. Silver Cross is answering to an enormous demand for products that enable the baby boomer market to maintain their independence.
