Assistive Devices

Description Assistive devices are pieces of equipment that allow people with disabilities to function more independently. They can be simple or complex. Some examples of assistive devices include kitchen utensils with large grips, seats for the shower or bath, wheelchairs, and specialized computers. The Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities has funds available for persons with disabilities to buy or rent new or used assistive devices. A few restrictions: an assistive device must directly promote independent action or communication; also, money is provided only when no other funds are available to cover the cost of the device.
Eligibility Adults with disabilites with an assessed need. (Per-purchase and lifetime limits apply.)
Availability Statewide
Info or Enrollment Contact the Delaware Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) by phone or email.
