REHACARE 2018: More successful than ever!

Dear Sir or Madam,

Whether golf in a wheelchair or eSports in the Sports Center – at REHACARE 2018 there was something for everyone. A total of 50,600 trade fair visitors with and without disabilities came to the Düsseldorf exhibition halls to obtain information and competent advice from 967 exhibitors from 42 countries. For all those who were unable to attend the fair or want to refresh their memories, we have summarised the highlights of the four trade fair days for you.

We are already looking forward to welcoming you back to Düsseldorf in 2019. Until then, we will provide you with many interesting news, monthly topics and interviews throughout the year.

Have a relaxing week,

Nadine Lormis
Editorial team

Michaela Gurzinski – That's how she rolls

How we roll

The human being should be in the focus, not the disability. And in questions which concern people with disabilities, they should also be consulted themselves. That's what Michaela Gurzinski would like to see from society and politics. She also tells us on who can make her laugh quite well and what she still needs about ten certificates for.

Whether they live in a rented flat or their own home, alone or in a shared flat - people want to be able to choose the way they live for themselves. It doesn't matter whether they have a disability or need care or not. But freedom of choice is not the same for everyone. You can find out what challenges, opportunities and promising projects there are in our Topic of the Month October: Accessible living - with and without care needs.
