Adaptive equipment involves devices and tools that you can use to assist you with completing activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing, toileting, feeding, and grooming. These devices aim to increase your independence and improve self-care abilities and may involve anything from simple aids to state-of-the-art electronic devices.

If you have physical disabilities or vision impairments, you may benefit from a variety of adaptive equipment and routines. This adaptive equipment and strategies may involve the aids that help you eat independently, such as adapted plates or dishes, adapted utensils, and adapted cooking equipment.

Adaptive dressing equipment like dressing sticks, the sock aid, elastic shoelaces, or long-handled shoehorn may be useful if you have physical and/or cognitive limitations that impair your self-care abilities.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
