Daily living

In this section you will find information on equipment designed to assist your child with daily living activities such as personal care and eating and drinking.

Our section on children's personal care equipment contains information and advice on the equipment available to help children and their parents or carers with routine personal care tasks. For example, having a bath or shower, going to the toilet and changing clothes before or after bathing or toileting. This section does not include information on the wide range of adult baths and showers available. To view these items, please visit the bathing section of Living made easy.

The eating and drinking items listed here have particular features which are relevant to disabled children and young people. Other useful items which are readily available through high street retailers such as standard children's cutlery, trainer beakers, disposable bibs, feeding bottles and teats are not included here.
