Equipment to help you

What does it do?

If you have problems bathing, washing or dressing, there is a range of specially designed equipment to help make looking after yourself simpler and help you to stay living independently in your own home.
This could be a bath board and grab handles around the bath area to help you get in and of the bath safely. Or you may need a raised toilet seat to help you get on and off the toilet safely. Or to help you get dressed more easily, a button hook is useful if you have difficulties fastening buttons. 

Who it is for?

Items of minor equipment are available for people over the age of 18, who live in Bury and who need practical help due to sight or hearing loss, physical or learning disabilities, frailty or illness. These can sometimes be all that is needed to help you to maintain your independence and quality of life.
