Before viewing your report please read this advice:
AskSara is a self-assessment tool providing information and advice on equipment that can aid with independent living.
An AskSara assessment is not a substitute for an assessment by an occupational therapist or appropriate health care professional.
Consider whether you need a professional assessment before purchasing any equipment that may affect your balance, mobility, posture, pressure care, ability to summon help, or general safety.
There may also be safety considerations you need to be aware of. Each person's requirement for equipment will vary.
If you are assessed by an occupational therapist or healthcare professional it may be helpful to share this report with them. You can find contact details for your local council on the GOV.UK website. They will be able to put you in touch with their Social Services Occupational Therapy team.
If you decide to buy equipment, you should read the instructions carefully. For further information, seek advice either from the equipment supplier or manufacturer. We recommend you look for suppliers who are members of a trade organisation who operate an accredited Code of Practice, such as the BHTA, BSIA or SSAIB or who are a charity governed by the Charities Commission.
