Service Origin

One day, we will be old
One day, our beloved families, even ourselves might become physically challenged due to injury or illness.
Starting from that moment, the environment that used to be ordinary, will be friendly no more.

Assistive devices that seem to be only needed by a few people, are actually very common in our daily life.
Devices, including glasses and dentures, that help us overcome our physical limitations and make our life easier, can be considered as assistive devices in general.

For example, wheelchairs are like the feet for people with lower limb disability; guide canes are the eyes for the visually impaired people. With assistive devices, people with disabilities can regain independence, enter the workplace and be able to react directly to the challenges in life.

 

輔具服務,始終是伊甸與身障夥伴共同努力的重要面向。

 

Assistive Devices Service

Assistive devices service has always been an important aspect of Eden and disabled partners.

 

伊甸輔具服務,提供輔具評估、維修、借用、回收等服務,幫助需求民眾、家庭找到最合適的輔具支持,並且協助連結相關補助等資源。

 

Assistive Devices Centre

Eden has been entrusted by some city governments to operate their “Assistive Devices Centre”, including those in Keelung, Taipei City West District, Hsinchu City, Tainan City, etc.

The Assistive Devices Centres offer evaluation, maintenance, lending and recycling of assistive devices, as well as supporting those in need and the families find the most suitable assistive devices, in addition to assisting in obtaining related resources.

Eden- Pihsiang Assistive Technology Centre
Since 2013, Eden has cooperated with Pihsiang Homecare Co., Ltd. in establishing a non-governmental assistive technology centre to provide maintenance, leasing, and related consultation services.

Moreover, through their mobile maintenance van, Eden-Pihsiang Assistive Technology Centre initiates home-visit and roadside assistance to help provide immediate maintenance and examination.

 

2014年,伊甸針對偏遠地區長輩所進行「社區長者輔具需求調查」,發現偏鄉長者的生活自理困難,環境風險均明顯高於平均。

 

Community Assistive Device Station

In 2014, Eden conducted a questionnaire of “Demand Survey for Senior Citizen on Assistive Devices” in remote areas. Found out that almost 50% of the senior citizens have difficulties to perform activities of daily living; among those 50%, there’re 20% of them are living without the help of assistive devices; and nearly 80% of the elderly are living in an unsafe home environment.

Slippery wet floors, high door thresholds and inadequate lighting are the main concerns.
The seniors, who live in remote areas, are unable to perform self-care activities and the environment risk is significantly higher than average.

For this reason, Eden Social Welfare Foundation generated the “Community Assistive Device Station Programme“.
These programs collaborate with community churches, and cooperating with existing senior services to set up Community Assistive Device Stations.
More than 90% of the partners are in remote areas of relative resource scarcity.

 

伊甸基金會於2014年起啟動「社區輔具站計畫」,結合當地既有的長者服務成立社區輔具站其中超過九成合作單位為相對資源匱乏的偏鄉地區
