What support is available to help me keep independent?

If you have a disability and/or experience difficulty completing daily tasks, you have a couple of options:

Community Equipment Service

The service provides a range of equipment to help you live independently. This funded by your Kirklees Council and NHS, where Medequip provide the equipment on loan and includes delivery and fitting, servicing, collection and recycling.

You may be eligible for specific equipment following an assessment, where health or social care prescribers such as an Occupational Therapist can work with you to find ways of managing tasks, offer advice and potential solutions.

To access equipment and request an assessment, you can ask your GP for a referral or if you are to be discharged from hospital, an assessment can be arranged.

To enquire or request an assessment directly, you can contact Kirklees Council's Community Health and Social Care Hub on 0300 304 5555 or explore Kirklees Council's BetterCare Support - an online adult social care self-assessment tool designed to empower individuals in managing their social care needs. Once you have registered and completed the online self-assessment, this will be sent directly to the Kirklees Adult Social Care team and they will be able to identify what support is available to you.
