Equipment and adaptations for your home

Equipment and adaptations for your home

Your multidisciplinary team will ask how you're coping with day‑to‑day activities, such as personal care, dressing, bathing, housework, shopping, food preparation, eating and drinking, and how you are finding work and day‑to‑day activities. They will ask about any falls and if you have problems with your hands.

Help with equipment or adaptations for your home that meet your needs should be provided promptly, so that you can get the most out of what you can do.

If you need a wheelchair, you should be referred to wheelchair services and get one that is right for you quickly.

Your needs will change as MND progresses, so your team should make sure that the equipment changes as your needs change.
