The Dudley Assisted Living Centre is an important resource for all disabled people and their carers living in Dudley. It has a range of equipment to assist daily living. It is located in an adapted house attached to Jack Newell Court, Coseley; which enables demonstrations and trial use of equipment within every day settings such as kitchen, bedroom or bathroom. If you are assessed as having an essential need for any of the equipment it will be provided FREE of CHARGE on a loan basis until the item is no longer required, but will remain the property of Dudley MBC.
