Support for adults

ILC for professionals

We offer a free and impartial equipment advice and assessment service for people wanting to maintain their independence. We are funded by Devon County Council and the Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust.

  • You can refer clients to us to be assessed for equipment to meet their needs – allowing them to be discharged from hospital or to live at home safely for longer.
  • You can visit us to learn about new equipment so that you can prescribe the best solutions for clients.
  • We invite reps in to demonstrate new developments – all Devon professionals can come along and see what new equipment is available.
  • We can visit your workplace to run equipment workshops tailored to the needs of your staff.

Phone 01392 380181 for information or to arrange a visit.
