The Enabled Living Lounge is designed to look like a real home and is equipped with assistive technology and equipment that can help you to continue to live independently in your own home.
The Lounge is a place where you can try simple aids or adaptations that are designed to help you with tasks like:
- getting in and out of the bath or bed
- getting up and off the toilet or chair
- opening jars and bottles
- putting on socks or shoes
- washing your hair or feet
How we work
If you wish to visit The Lounge for an assessment or to try some equipment you can self-refer by telephone or online, or someone can refer you on your behalf through the London Borough of Newham’s Adult Social Care Access Team.

Before your appointment you will be asked to provide some information about your home, including measurements and some photos, to help us understand what will be right for your needs.
The Lounge is a welcoming space where we will talk to you about the problems you are having at home. We will assess your situation, demonstrate and recommend different equipment that can help you. The equipment we offer is free and on loan for as long as you need it.
