Equipment to help you live independently (adult social care)


In South Tyneside, we want to support people to continue to live independently in their own homes.

There is a wide range of equipment that can help people with everyday tasks that may have become an issue because of disability, ill-health or due to changes as we grow older.

Making physical changes to the home may also be considered to make it easier and safer to get around.

Equipment can help to make your life easier if you're having problems with daily living activities in your home such as moving around your home safely or getting in and out of the bath or shower.

How to get equipment

If you think you may need equipment, you need to be referred by the Let's Talk team or your GP.
