Some patients with respiratory conditions would benefit from assistance with activities of daily living, or from adaptations to their home, such as installation of a stair lift, walk in shower or handrails.  An emergency help button from Telecare, which you can press to call for assistance in the case of a fall or other emergency, can also provide reassurance. Find links to more information in this section.
