Equipment

There is a range of equipment available to make life easier and to improve safety and independence in the home, such as stair rails, raised toilet seats, shower stools etc. These simple items are often referred to as ‘Simple Aids for Daily Living’. If you would like more information please contact Health and Community Services, HertsHelp or go to: www.hertsdirect.org.

Health and Community Services works closely with voluntary organisations such as Hertfordshire Hearing and Advisory Service, Hertfordshire Society for the Blind and Hertfordshire Action on Disability (HAD). These organisations can also give advice and information about equipment and may offer help with ordering or run a hire or loan scheme.

HAD has a permanent display of specialist equipment where you can try different pieces of equipment and it also runs a wheelchair accessible transport service. HAD is located at the Terry Stevens Centre which is open to the public Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm and from 10am – 2pm on Saturdays. For more information please contact the manager on 01707 384260 or email: exhibition@hadnet.org.uk
