Purchasing daily living aids empowers you to live independently for longer, giving you the confidence to remain in your own home and complete everyday tasks safely.

With a wide range of equipment choice and advice, through local mobility retailers or online, finding equipment that is right for you has never been easier. This can range from food preparation and mobility to dressing and bathing aids.

For online advice, you could use an online self-assessment tool, giving you free impartial advice about all types of equipment, to make daily living easier.

You could also consider Medequip’s online retail store, Manage At Home for a choice of 4000+ products from 100+ leading manufacturers of daily living aids, delivered directly to your home within 3-5 working days.

VAT relief is also available on many products, giving you financial help if you are disabled or have a chronic illness. To find out more visit VAT Relief.

For more complex needs and requirements, we recommend that you seek professional advice from an Occupational Therapist.
