Daily living aids are products, devices, and equipment that can help you perform everyday tasks and activities more easily and independently. They are designed to assist people who have difficulties or challenges in doing things that are essential for their daily living, such as personal care, health management, home maintenance, leisure, and education. Some of the reasons why someone might need a daily living aid are:
- They have a disability that affects their mobility, vision, hearing, cognition, or communication. For example, someone who uses a wheelchair might need a ramp to access their home, someone who is blind might need a text reader to read books, someone who is deaf might need a hearing aid battery to power their device, someone who has dementia might need a pill cutter to split their medication, etc.
- They have an injury that limits their function or causes them pain. For example, someone who has a broken arm might need a pulley to exercise their shoulder, someone who has a sprained ankle might need a folding cane to walk, someone who has a burn wound might need a hot/cold wrap to soothe their skin, etc.
- They want to age in place and remain independent in their own home. For example, someone who is elderly might need a lamp switch extender to turn on their light, someone who has arthritis might need a plug puller to unplug their appliances, someone who has incontinence might need protective underwear to prevent leaks, etc.
