What is Disabled Living?
Disabled Living is a charity that focuses on providing impartial information and advice about equipment for children, adults and older people and the professionals who support them.
This is one of five areas that Disabled Living is involved with. The Disabled Living head office is located in Worsley. At this location there is the Disabled Living Centre. Here there is a permanent display of equipment to be viewed and tried. The service offers impartial advice about items that can help someone keep their independence. Alongside viewing the equipment, appointments can be booked with an Occupational Therapist, and they can help guide you in your equipment choice.
The types of items you are likely to find at the centre are stair lifts, wheelchairs, baths and toilets, beds, kitchen equipment and much more.
