Assistive equipment, technology and changes to the home can help people with disability and older people to remain in their home, be safer and more independent.
At ILC Cockburn you can get expert, unbiased information and advice from an occupational therapist about equipment and technology options for you, or for the person or family member you are caring for.
The Centre is set up like an apartment so you can see, trial and experience assistive equipment, technology and changes to the home in a replica living environment.
ILC Cockburn also features an integrated ‘Smart Home’ display. Smart home technology can provide an alternative way to control appliances and services in the home and ensure people’s safety.
For example, you can switch the lights on simply by walking into a room, change the TV channel with a smart phone, control the blinds via a tablet and see who is at your doorstep and be able to let visitors in with the touch of a button from any room in your home.
Also on display at ILC Cockburn is telecare technology including personal alarm call systems; a wireless alerting system which enables people with hearing loss to recognise when the doorbell, phone or smoke alarm is ringing; and a range of other assistive equipment and technology products.
ILC Cockburn compliments the Nedlands Centre which has thousands of assistive equipment and technology items on display including mobility devices, telecommunications, personal care aids, kitchen equipment, lifting and transferring products, seats, beds and home modifications.
