Happy at Home

Happy at Home logoThe Happy at Home page contains lots of information and advice. It aims to help you remain and regain independence at home. 

You can use our ‘interactive house’. Click on the rooms where you have the most need to find guidance and daily living equipment.

For further help visit our social care journey webpage or contact your nearest community help point.

As well as our online recommendations, you may prefer to visit a local shop in Staffordshire. Take a look at Staffordshire Connects to find a range of local retailers. We encourage you to shop around once you have found the type of item you need.

Daily living equipment and technology (also called assistive technology) are items of equipment that can help you with your everyday tasks. They can support you to manage your own health and stay independent and safe in your own home.

The items don’t have to be expensive or technical. Things like jar openers, long-handled shoe horns and eye drop dispensers can be bought for less than £10. You can buy them from the local high street e.g. Argos, Wilko, pharmacies, pound shops and supermarkets, and also online.
