In this guide we look at the most common and useful mobility aids, ranging from walking sticks and frames, to wheelchairs and mobility scooters. We explain the choices that are available and, when it comes to mobility scooters and wheelchairs, the different opportunities you have for hiring as well as buying them.
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.
