Help yourself to assistive devices

Assistive devices are products designed to help people do everyday tasks. There are many such products, including wheelchairs, canes, grab bars, slip-resistant flooring or mats, as well as aids to help you dress, prepare food or live safely within your home. They all have one thing in common: they're used by people of all ages who want to live independently and with confidence.

Veterans Affairs Canada offers financial assistance to eligible clients who need to purchase assistive devices. Your access to these benefits depends on your eligibility status and your specific health needs. Certain limitations and restrictions also may apply. To find out if you are eligible for this type of support, please call your nearest VAC Regional or District Office. For more information about assistive devices available through VAC, see Programs of Choice 1: Aids for Daily Living.
