About equipment and home adaptation

There is a large range of equipment which can help with everyday activities that you may be having difficulty with.  This includes walking, having a bath or shower, moving around if you cannot walk or stand.

Impartial advice and access to trial equipment is available in North Somerset at the Equipment Demonstration Centre at Motex Site on Winterstoke Road in Weston super Mare.

Equipment can be provided by North Somerset Council and local health services on a loan basis, free of charge, following an assessment of your needs by a professional. 

Adaptations can also be made to your home to help you manage more independently.  Small adaptations can be prescribed for you and provided free of charge to meet your assessed needs.

Larger home adaptations can be accessed through a disabled facilities grant via North Somerset Council and are dependent on assessed need.
