Independent Living Centre

Equipment for independent living

Offering a free, impartial service to Island residents, the Centre displays a range of equipment and adaptations for daily living on a try-before-you-buy basis. We do not sell any products but we can give you information about where to purchase them. Independent Living Skills Assessors will spend a short time assessing your needs, either over the phone or face-to-face at the Centre, before taking you through the options that might suit you in our bedroom, bathroom, lounge and kitchen room sets.

For an appointment, please phone us on 01983 241494 or complete the Contact Us form and we will phone you.

Independent Living Skills Assessment

An assessment at the centre, which takes around an hour, gives you the opportunity to discuss your needs in detail with an assessor who will then demonstrate relevant equipment for you.
