Not sure what could help you live independently at home? Visit one of our centres to try out equipment and get advice.

If you're not sure what equipment might help you, you can visit an independent living centre. Expert staff at the centres can help you and your family or carer choose the best equipment to meet your needs. You can see and try different things and sometimes even borrow small pieces of equipment to try at home before you buy. They can also provide information and advice on suppliers and services.

There is a wide range of products for you to look at and try, including;

  • bathing and showering aids
  • riser-recliner chairs and armchairs
  • wheelchairs, scooters, and walking aids
  • meal preparation, feeding and drinking products
  • beds and associated items
  • clothing and personal care products including toileting, washing, dressing aids
  • moving and handling equipment
  • telecare solutions

The centres don't sell anything so the information and advice they provide is impartial and free and you will be under no pressure to make a decision.
