Elaine is committed to restoring dignity in disability. Many assistive devices loaned via the NHS local authority are generally of the type featured in disability catalogues - functional but utilitarian in appearance with limited colour choice and uncomplimentary to décor.
Some people are happy to keep and use such products indefinitely, but others view them as embarrassing or depressing and resist using them. This reluctance frequently results in falls, injuries and hospital admissions.
Elaine takes a holistic approach when assessing her clients’ abilities and makes detailed recommendations regarding alternative products that enables them to carry out activities safely and can also advise on space planning and reconfiguration.
