About Disability Equipment
Disability equipment is vital in promoting independence, safety, social inclusion and quality of life for many people. This equipment helps the elderly and disabled people of all ages to overcome barriers in their daily life and get on with the tasks otherwise taken for granted. It helps to give people control over their own lives.
In many cases the provision of equipment is sufficient to enable people to get on with their lives and meet their own personal care needs independently. In other cases where the individual requires additional help from their carer, personal assistant or care provider, the provision of equipment is still essential towards promoting independence and quality of life, as well as ensuring that the carer and client are safe.
