ILC Country Services
Our unique ILC Country Services offer free information advice and trials of assistive technology (AT) to help make living easier we have access to a database of over 10,000 items and can provide our mobile caravan display for community events and expert AT advice.
NOTE: WE DO NOT SELL ANY EQUIPMENT.
Assistive technology (AT) can range from something as simple as a jar opener or shoe horn, to more custom equipment like seating, communication devices, mobility aids and computer access controls. The ILC are experts in AT and are passionate about promoting independence, safety and quality of life.
Talks to community groups
Groups such as Seniors, Probus, Rotary, Lions, Bowling Clubs, RSL, P&F, CWA and Carers’ support groups can contact us prior to us visiting their local area to arrange a talk on a range of topics, such as Living with Arthritis or Choosing a Scooter, or we can help introduce you to the ILC and explain the services we offer. Contact us for further advice on 1300 885 886
A time may be pre-booked with our Occupational Therapist or Speech Therapist to discuss an individual’s needs or AT concerns. With enough notice, we can try to bring suitable equipment for trial.
These may be formal presentations or informal updates on assistive technology (AT).
If individual appointments are being booked it is helpful to have a videoconference prior to the visit to refine equipment choices. To find out more information please view the ILC Videoconferencing page.
