Equipment loans services
Equipment loans services provide equipment to help people with disabilities and health needs to return to or remain in their homes.
The equipment provided will often play a crucial part in enabling people to live as independently as possible and to improve daily life.
Services offer a range of equipment, including:
- Toileting and bathing aids
- Walking frames
- Pressure-relieving cushions
- Mattresses and profiling beds
- Specialised items to meet specific conditions
Individuals, their carer or relatives will be provided with training in the use of the equipment. This will generally be carried out by a follow up visit from a professional.
When the individual no longer needs the equipment, it is then returned to the Equipment Loans Service.
