Occupational Therapy self selection service
About the service
Sometimes little changes can make a big difference. The Occupational Therapy self selection service has been developed to offer quick and easy access to a wide range of simple equipment and minor adaptations to help you inside and outside your home.
The equipment and adaptations will help people who, through age, illness or disability, are finding it more difficult to manage simple household or personal care tasks. All of the items are available FREE and without professional assessment to East Lothian residents aged 16 and over.
The equipment ranges from walking sticks and dressing aids to specially adapted cutlery and cups. Adaptations include grab and handrails for inside and outside your home.
Please note that this service is for people aged 16 or over. If you need equipment or an adaptation for a young person who is under 16, we recommend that you contact us for an assessment to make sure that all of their needs are being met.
