There are many types of equipment that can help you in your daily life. These range from small items like bath aids and hand rails to large specialist equipment designed to help people with particular disabilities. If your Social Services or health professional has assessed you as needing this equipment and you meet the eligibility criteria then this will be arranged for you.
With help from the Department of Health, Social Services and local NHS organisations have created a joint Devon Community Equipment Service.
We are sharing our planning with service users and voluntary organisations to ensure we meet people’s needs as closely as possible. Social Services already has a county wide service operating from Exeter supplying equipment direct to peoples own homes or to local stores for onward delivery by health and social care professionals.
