Aids & equipment

There are many items of equipment available for people with a disability or health condition, or those who are just finding things difficult which can help you to live as independently as possible by making everyday tasks easier and safer.

These can help with things such as:

  • Domestic aids, e.g. furniture raisers and perching stools
  • Bathing, e.g. bath boards and seats
  • Using the toilet, e.g. raised toilet seats and commodes
  • Mobility, e.g. hoists, specialist beds and chairs, wheelchairs
  • Memory loss, e.g. calendar clocks and medication prompts

There are a number of shops where you can purchase equipment.  You can try things out for yourself and get advice from experienced staff. 

If getting to the shops is difficult, you can buy on-line e.g.  Living Aids Direct which specialises in independent living products. 

Health-related charities, such as RNIB, Action on Hearing Loss and the Stroke Association, also sell equipment that may be useful to people with the condition they support.

The Disabled Living Foundation is a national charity that provides impartial advice, information and training on daily living aids. Their Ask Sara pages provide guided advice and information about products that can help with your health, your home and your daily activities.

Focus on Disability is an online resource providing information for adults and children who have a disability, care needs, long term illness or mobility problem. Their website includes an online shop for aids and equipment for disabled people

Sometimes equipment is only needed for a short period, while someone recovers from an illness or accident. The British Red Cross is able to provide mobility equipment such as wheelchairs, backrests, bath seats, walking sticks and frames, commodes, bedpans and urinals on short-term loan (6-12 weeks).

If you have a hearing or visual impairment, we have staff who can advise on specialist equipment.
