Equipment and Support Services
Evan can now get to the backyard on his own.

The Equipment and Support Services (ESS) provides specialized mobility and adaptive equipment. We provide people with disabilities and medical conditions with the power wheelchairs, scooters, hospital beds, lift assist chairs, porch lifts, stair lifts, and other specialized equipment they need to remain independent and to be active members of their community. 

The ESS program is based on financial need - full equipment grants, cost share and interest free loans are available. Albertans with disabilities and special needs connect with us when vital equipment isn't available through government program or community resources.

Equipment provided is essential for independent living and improved quality of life. This in turn ensures fewer hospital stays, with minimal dependence on the health care system.
