Equipment or adaptions
Even simple equipment can mean the difference between living independently and needing someone to look after you.
You can buy your own equipment, but an occupational therapist or social worker can help make decisions about the equipment that would be most helpful. Decisions about the kind of equipment you may need will often be the result of an assessment of your care and support needs.
If you have a child with a disability, their GP may refer them to a physiotherapist to assess their mobility needs. The physiotherapist assessing them will be able to explain what kinds of aids may help your child. You can get some ideas of what is available using our equipment house.
