Equipment To Help You

What does it do?

The service provides equipment such as an additional stair rail to help you get up and down the stairs safely. You may need a grab handle to hold onto when getting in and out of your home. Chair raisers can take the strain out of sitting down or getting up from your chair. A simple bedroom grab rail may be all you need to help sit up in bed. All items of minor equipment or minor adaptations will help to make life easier for you and enable you to stay living independently in your own home.

Who it is for?

If you have problems getting around your home, there is a range of specially designed equipment to help you move around safely. Equipment and minor equipment is available for eligible adults with a permanent disability, who live permanently in Wigan and who need practical help due to sight or hearing loss, physical or learning disabilities, frailty or illness.

Where it is available?

Local service (Wigan).
