Home Safety Equipment

These products are designed to aid independence for those with limited dexterity, strength or sensory function. You should consult a Home Medical Equipment company for advice/product catalogs, but here is an idea of the types of equipment available that can allow your loved one to safely stay in their home and more comfortably perform activities of daily living. Many products can be rented as well as purchased.

It shouldn’t be ignored that these products can also provide a positive psychological effect. They empower an elderly person to manage their own lives and self-efficacy thus supporting their need for dignity, independence and personal-identity.
