When it comes to choosing equipment to help an older person stay at home, the variety of bathroom-ware that is available is most impressive. It ranges from bath boards and seats to lifts and hoists – and all manner of care products in between.

If you're wondering what kind of help would be best for your relative or friend, our Care advice tool can give you some guidance about housing options, day-to-day living arrangements and how to pay for care. 

Use our Care services directory to find care homes and domiciliary care anywhere in the UK. You can also find support groups for people affected by dementia.
