Our Centre for Independent Living in Carlisle stocks a wide range of daily living aids and equipment, which you can buy, or use a prescription to obtain. We can also deliver and fit equipment for a small charge. You can get help and advice from our trained staff, so that you can make the right purchase (we have “trusted assessor” status).
Disability Aids we stock
We have an extensive range of new and used equipment that can help you maintain your independence. Our most popular items are shower stools, trolleys, walkers, wheelchairs and “Kylie” bed pads (washable bed pads).
“I took my 93 year old Mother in Law for a wheelchair. I was able to try the wheelchairs out and the staff were able to demonstrate them, which made my life a lot easier. Very friendly & knowledgeable staff and I would certainly recommend to others. I will definitely be back if I need any more equipment. A big bonus is having disabled parking at the rear of the building” Lisa.
We can also offer confidential advice, guidance and sign posting on continence issuse. We stock “Abena” continence care products, so you can feel reassured that you will get the same products that the NHS continence service provides.
We have a large car park with ample disabled parking at the back of our building, which you are welcome to use if you are visiting the shop. We’re based on St Nicholas St, close to Junction 42 of the M6 and a just a stone’s throw from Scotland. Directions
