There is a lot of equipment that can help you carry out daily living tasks; everything from helping you to get out of bed to getting into the bath.

At some time in our lives, perhaps because of disability or just getting older, many of us find it more difficult to carry out everyday tasks. This might be getting out of your chair or feeling a bit wobbly when you have, or struggling to climb into the bath.  Sometimes, just getting the lid off a jar or lifting a heavy kettle can be difficult.  Not being able to clearly see buttons on controls or read instructions brings its own difficulties. 

Many people don't ask for help because they feel this is giving up independence.  In fact, 'assistive technology' can mean that you do not have to rely on others and can stay independent for longer.
