What do we do?

Jointly funded by Pembrokeshire County Council and Hywel Dda University Health Board, the Social Health Alliance Pembrokeshire Equipment Service (SHAPES) provide equipment to enable you to aid and maintain your daily living activities and independence at home.  All equipment is provided free of charge for as long as it required.

Examples of equipment that may be recommended for use include:

  • toilet seats and commodes
  • furniture raisers
  • walking frames
  • hoists
  • profiling beds
  • pressure care mattresses

 

Who do we support?

Adults and children with an assessed need.  In order that you get the correct equipment, a health or social professional will call to assess your needs.  If you have been in hospital you will be assessed before you are discharged.  If you are at home one of the following professionals will assess you:

  • District/Community Nurse attached to your GP practice
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Physiotherapist
  • Other 'Trusted Assessor' health or social care professional involved in your care

 

Looking to return equipment?

Where possible we encourage small equipment to be returned directly to the store.  For larger equipment, or where you are not able to return equipment yourself, please call the office and a collection can be arranged from your property.
