The Dudley Assisted Living Centre is an important resource for all disabled people and their carers living in Dudley.

Located in two adapted centres, Coseley and Brierley Hill; we have fantastic facilities with a permanent display of equipment for assessment and demonstration.  We offer demonstrations and trial use of equipment within everyday settings such as kitchen, bedroom or bathroom. If you are assessed as having an essential need for any of our equipment it will be loaned to you, free of charge until you no longer require it. 

The centre and what to expect

A member of staff will greet you on arrival and take you to our waiting area on the ground floor (a lift is available if required). Our Occupational Therapy team will then meet with you to offer a full assessment, information and independent advice to determine the best assistance and equipment for you.  On some occasions it may be necessary to also visit you in your home for a more detailed assessment. 

Please visit the Adaptations pages for more information.
