Disabled people - specialist equipment, home adaptations and aids

We can provide access to equipment to help people overcome everyday difficulties caused by their disability or illness.

Specialist equipment for sight or hearing difficulties

If you have a sight or hearing difficulty, we can assess whether you would benefit from care services through a needs assessment. We can also provide information and advice to help you to maintain your independence as well as training for any specialist equipment which can help you in your everyday life. You can find more details on the hearing and vision impairment section.

Home adaptations and aids

If you have difficulties managing in your home, it may be possible to alter or adapt your property. We offer services and support to help you to live independently. An occupational therapist or someone from social care services can visit your home to discuss your needs.

AskSARA online self-assessment

You can use the free AskSARA online self-assessment tool to look into ways of helping yourself with daily activities in your own home. This is an alternative option to contacting us directly for a needs assessment.
