Provision (CAEP)

The Community Aids and Equipment Program (CAEP) of the Disability and Services Commission (DSC) provides an equitable, accessible and consistent state-wide scheme for the provision of equipment and home modifications to benefit people with a long-term disability living at home in the community.

All equipment and home modifications funded by CAEP are provided to enhance the function, independence and safety of the equipment user; and to assist unpaid carers in their caring role.

The CRC has a variety of equipment available for purchase including wheelchairs, standing frames, walking frames, height adjustable desks, hoists and commodes. Trial periods can be arranged in conjunction with the child's therapist to ensure suitability of equipment. In some instances equipment is available for short-term hire.

In the first instance, ask your GP or specialist if you are eligible and to then refer you to a local CAEP service provider. This may be a public hospital, health or disability service.
