Living and feeling better can start with a simple step-connecting. Health Connections Mendip is provided by your Mendip GP practices to improve your health and wellbeing.
If you need advice, small aids or equipment, guidance on home improvements or you would like a referral for minor works such as rails and ramping or larger works under a Disabled Facilities Grant you may benefit in visiting our Independent Advice Centre (IAC) in Shepton Mallet.
Here you will be able to try a range of equipment, to increase your home safety and independence. At an Independent Advice Centre, you will be able to speak to an Occupational Therapist or Adult Social Care Worker for professional advice and for a practical assessment.
Unfortunately, we are not currently offering a ‘drop-in’ system due to the ongoing implications of COVID-19, this may change in the future with the ongoing review of the guidelines by the Government.
To book a visit to view the equipment at an Independent Advice Centre, or to request a practical assessment please call Somerset Direct.
