Explains the provision, both in law and practice, of equipment and home adaptations to assist older or disabled people in daily living. Characterised by ill defined statutory responsibilities and terminology, and an under developed consumer retail market, the system of provision has long been recognised as chaotic and confusing for professionals and public alike. This book aims to focus on these weaknesses and attempt to promote better practice, as well as to assist people to understand the law when things go wrong.
