Equipment and Resources

Equipment

Practical aids and equipment are sometimes needed so that a person can maintain independence, or in order for a person to be cared for safely and comfortably at home.

Members of the healthcare team can advise people on what might be useful. For example: physiotherapists can advise about aids for moving around; occupational therapists provide assistance with aids and home improvements to make activities of daily living easier etc.

The equipment recommended can be obtained from a number of sources, including TasEquip, please see their brochure for more information about fees etc.
