Assistive Technology allows older people living with a disability to live a more independent lifestyle.
The aim of these technologies is to help people to overcome any obstacles that a disability may create in an individual’s daily life. To allow a person to continue to live independently or to maintain a good standard of quality of life.
The HSE provides funding to support the needs of assistive technologies through the aids and appliances budget. For further information call 041 6850300.
The HSE has compiled a resource of organisations working in the area of Assistive Technology. For details visit HSE.ie or call 041 6850300.
