Care equipment and adapting your home

If you’re elderly, disabled or have a long term health condition and want help to live safely and independently in your home, using equipment, technology or making adaptations to your home may be a good option for you. 

This could include:

  • getting equipment, like shower rails
  • adapting your home by installing a ramp or widening the doors
  • using everyday technology like computers or tablets to keep in touch with friends and family, or do your shopping online 
  • using telehealthcare

Care Information Scotland can give you the information and advice you need to get additions to your home made.
