Make life easier

AskSARA is our free, easy to use website which available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It shows you equipment and solutions that can make your life easier.

It provides advice and guidance that may help you, or someone you care about, with your health, your home or your daily activities.

How does AskSARA work?

The AskSARA website is simple to use.

  • all you have to do is choose one of the three broad categories: your health, your home or daily activities, and answer some questions
  • you will receive a report written by an occupational therapist with recommendations for advice and support
  • in some cases the report will highlight that you would benefit from a further assessment. If so, you will be provided with information on how to access this

Support for carers

Many carers use AskSARA to identify suitable equipment for the people they care for. If you are looking for support for yourself, contact the Borders Carers Centre.
