Our service is OPEN Monday – Friday for PRE BOOKED appointments. 

For over 25 years our NHS Occupational Therapy team has been helping people in Devon find equipment solutions to stay active and independent.  We are not a shop, we won’t try to sell you anything, which is why you can trust us to guide you through the solutions to suit you. You can call, email or book an appointment to visit our Occupational Therapy team.

Devon County Council asked us to help to create a self assessment tool for Devon residents to identify equipment to help at home. Most sections of the assessment process will lead back to the information on our Independent Living Centre website. Please do email or phone our Occupational Therapy team for individual advice and information or to arrange an appointment to try the equipment for yourself.

I attended the centre for my appointment with my wife and sister-in-law who are carers for me. I was met by the Occupational Therapist who did not rush us, answered all our questions, took time to test me on the walkers until we arrived at the most suitable model. The whole appointment boosted my confidence and will to improve and use new equipment.
