If you have problems completing daily living activities safely and independently there are many different types of specially designed equipment to make looking after yourself simpler. Being able to move about your home safely will help you maintain your wellbeing and enable you to stay living independently in your own home.
Small pieces of equipment such as perching stools and raised toilet seats can make daily living tasks much easier to manage.
Read more about the support available at the Disabled Living Foundation (DLF). DLF is a national charity providing independent advice on mobility aids, disability aids and daily living equipment.
If you are still uncertain as to what equipment would make life easier for you contact Hillingdon Social Care Direct to request an assessment or complete one online. You may be entitled to assessment from our occupational therapy team. If you are eligible for support you will be given a prescription that can be redeemed in a range of accredited retailers across the borough or we may provide equipment on loan.
