We are now open for BOOKABLE appointments only Monday – Friday.

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.

Our website is an introduction to our Devon wide service. 

Go to ‘Equipment Advice’ to find out about gadgets and technology for independence.

See the ‘Before you Buy Guides’ for guidance when you are buying equipment, and see the ‘Local suppliers’ page for lists of Devon retailers who sell equipment.

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.
