If you are finding some areas of daily living becoming difficult, you may wish to consider items to help you do things like:
If you have had an assessment by Social Services and we have recommended that you buy your own equipment or we have assessed you as ineligible, or if you have decided to buy equipment yourself, read finding your own equipment.
Also go to the Ask Sara website, an online guided-assessment which offers recommendations.
If you believe you have a condition which you need help with, contact us or speak to your GP. A range of assistive technology, equipment and adaptations is available to support you to continue to live in your own home, some of which may be provided free of charge.
We will only provide equipment to you if you have been assessed as eligible by a trained worker.
If you are assessed as eligible, you may be provided with equipment free-of-charge, although this is not guaranteed.
It may be that we direct you to find help via friends and family, charity funding, or recommend that you buy your own equipment.
