Age UK West Cumbria stocks a wide range of mobility and disability equipment to assist with disabilities or to help people remain independent. Five of our centres stock a range of equipment available for self-purchase or on prescription.  They provide aids from bathing to kitchen aids to general household equipment.

 

Age UK West Cumbria also provides an assessment service which allows a trained member of staff to assess your exact needs.

 

Additionally Age UK West Cumbria Old Customs House, Whitehaven is the only stockist of Cosyfeet shoes in Cumbria. Cosyfeet are extra roomy shoes for swollen or misshapen feet. A variety of men’s and women’s slippers and shoes are stocked and we also offer an ordering service.

 

Age UK West Cumbria's Bradbury Independent Living Centre also stock a range of equipment in a simulated home setting and can demonstrate how aids and equipment can be used to improve the home environment. This includes Telecare which is a personal careline alarm ideal to help people remain safe and independent in their own home. This offers a 24-hour monitoring service, 365 days a year, in the form of a lightweight pendant worn around the user’s neck or wrist.  This provides a greater peace of mind and reassurance knowing help is just a press of a button away. The Bradbury Independent Living centre offers customers the opportunity to see Telecare in action.
