Since 1976, the Independent Living Services of Simcoe County & Area (ILS) has provided support and services to people with physical disabilities or limitations in Simcoe County and surrounding areas to assist individuals in leading dignified, productive, and independent lives. ILS has always promoted and encouraged opportunities for participation in our communities, therefore in 2012, when the United Way of Simcoe County/Muskoka awarded ILS with a grant to create a method of increasing access to used assistive devices, The Assistive Device Exchange (A.D.E.) was born. The initiative quickly became an opportunity where anyone can list a lightly used assistive device for sale, give away, OR where they may find used assistive devices they need, rather than having them fall into disrepair in someone’s garage, attic, or worse end up in the local landfill.
How It Works:
The Assistive Device Exchange (A.D.E.) is available to anyone who would like to sell, search or give-away an assistive device and to those who are looking for an assistive device to buy or find as a giveaway.
