View services to help you with everyday tasks

The AskSara website provides advice on equipment and adaptations which can help you with everyday tasks and getting out and about. This is supported by the services listed below.

Minor Adaptations

There are a range of local services which can support you in getting around the house, by fitting items like handrails or better lighting in your home. This equipment can help reduce the risk of falling. It is also possible to access support from the Council's commissioned service Orbitas.

Major Adaptations

Major adaptations such as stairlifts are available from a range of companies. You can also apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant from Cheshire East Council to get financial help. However, you must meet the criteria in order to qualify.

Care and Repair

If you are over state pension age or have a disability, the Council's Care and Repair service can provide advice on the repairs and adaptations to your home.

Occupational Therapy Assessment

If you need help to move around and manage everyday tasks, you may wish to request an Occupational Therapy Assessment from the Council. The Occupational Therapist will talk to you about your situation, look at activities you are struggling with and look at ways of making things easier and safer for you. They can also provide you with suitable equipment.

If you are an adult, you can contact Adult Social Care to discuss your care and support needs. Your discussion may result in us arranging an occupational therapy assessment in your home.

Equipment prescribed following an assessment is delivered and maintained by Ross Care in Cheshire East and Cheshire West under the Integrated Community Equipment Service.

Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology can be used to alert someone, like a family member, that you need help. This might be because you've had a fall. It can also provide a range of other support should as reminders about taking medication.
