Care equipment and adapting your home

If you’re elderly, disabled or have a long term health condition and want to live safely and independently in your own home there may be equipment, technology or adaptations that can be made to your home to make this possible. 

These 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.
