Do something for yourself

Independence is the key to leading a fulfilling life as we get older and whilst maintaining quality of life after accident, illness or injury.

Fortunately, achieving such independence and fulfilment is more attainable thanks to our carefully selected range of highly-effective mobility and rehabilitation aids, designed to enable a more active and independent lifestyle.

Whilst Homecare Equipment is based in Adelaide we can also ship direct to you Australia wide.

Our range of equipment includes:

  • Adaptable assistive equipment to make daily activities like walking, showering, sleeping and going to the toilet much easier.
  • Mobility equipment that enables people to get out and about with confidence and continue enjoying much-loved hobbies, family activities and social outings; and
  • Re-enabling equipment to accelerate recovery from injury and bring about the return to a fully active lifestyle.

Here are 15 things we can help you do:

1. Recover from Surgery

Undergoing surgery at any time can create a sense of unease. Recovery is the most important part. Some people recover quickly and others take a bit longer depending on your personal circumstances and condition. We can assist with your recovery and rehabilitation from hip/knee replacements, hand, shoulder and elbow surgery, as well as leg/foot and ankle procedures. Through your personal transition, you will gain comfort and gradually rebuild your strength and confidence.

2. Get out and about

If you're having trouble moving around or feel that you are getting 'cabin fever' we can help bring back a sense of normality to your life - you will be able to get out of the house or go out for a stroll in the park. Some people use our equipment to travel interstate or overseas.

3. Get in and out of bed

Sometimes getting in and out of bed can be a challenge. We can help you raise the height of your bed to make it easier to get into. There are also various ways to help lever yourself in and out of bed.
