Equipment and adaptions/telecare


If you're elderly, disabled or have a long-term health condition, using equipment and technology can help you live safely and independently at home and give reassurance to carers.

This could mean:

  • using equipment like shower grab rails or commodes
  • adapting your home by widening doors or installing a ramp
  • getting telehealthcare equipment so your health and care is monitored remotely
  • using everyday technology like a computer to do online shopping
