Domiciliary Equipment Service (DES) provides equipment and home modification services assisting people to be independent at home and in the community.
DES provides equipment to:
- Clients of the DCSI Equipment Program (includes Disability and Domiciliary Care Services, Novita Children’s Services and Minda Inc)
- Participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme
- Patients of hospitals
- Clients of non-government oganisations
Each program will have its own assessment requirements for clients using equipment services from DES. A prescription will need to be provided to DES detailing each person’s particular needs. DES will then deliver and install the items using trained staff where possible.
