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

If you’re struggling to complete day to day tasks, participate in activities with peers, and you may have a disability, equipment may be able to help.

Consider the self-care options first, but If your needs are complex and you require long term support, you may be eligible for an assessment, where prescribers such as an Occupational Therapist can work with you to find ways of managing tasks, offer advice and potential solutions. This is a local authority and NHS funded service, where Medequip provide the equipment on loan.

Equipment would be prescribed and loaned to you through the Community Equipment Service. Vital equipment is sourced and delivered within the community to support hospital discharges, avoid admission, and support the needs of Somerset residents, with the long-term aim of keeping people independent and safe in their home environment.

To access equipment, you will need to be assessed by a health or social care professional. Contact Somerset County Council's Social Care Team to enquire or request an assessment:

Call 0300 123 2224 or visit Somerset County Council’s Care and Support Assessment webpage for more information.
