In 2018 we launched our Independent Living Advisory Service. This was set up to help people continue to live in their own homes. Our advisors are on hand to suggest household aids and adaptations to support your continued independent living
The service is free for anyone from the community who is living in their own home. It offers impartial advice from an Occupational Therapist on a range of areas including:
We can support individuals whose main income is state benefits with funding of aids and adaptations. We will also support with local authority funding applications (Disabled Facilities Grant) for anyone who requires larger adaptations such as wet room conversions or stair lifts or ramps.
We are currently offering the service to people living within the M25, however if you do need support and are outside this area please get in touch and we will see if we can support you.
Thank you to The Rachel & David Barnett Charitable Trust for their generous and continued support towards the service.
I was struggling for a long time to get in and out of my bath. Then I heard from a friend about Jewish Blind & Disabled’s Independent Living Advisory service. The adviser suggested that I should use a shower/bath board. I was so relieved that there was a relatively simple solution to my problem. I was getting extremely upset about the loss of my independence and frustrated about my situation. I now know I can manage.”
