Disability Aids, Adaptations, and Social Care


All you need to know about disability aids and home adaptations – the NICE clinical guideline recommendations, NHS and social care service provision, disabled facilities grant, the blue badge scheme – and helpful tips from people with ME/CFS to help you achieve more independence.

In this comprehensive leaflet we consider affordability and financial help, and what you might expect from the NHS and social care services.

We review the recommendations in the 2021 NICE Clinical Guideline on ME/CFS, the Blue Badge Scheme, Disabled Facilities Grant and we talk about Independent Advocates who can be appointed if you are unable or are restricted from accessing social care services for yourself.

Also included are comments from people in the community who provide helpful tips and recommendations for disability aids that can be a lifeline and allow greater independence.
