Domiciliary Equipment Service

Domiciliary Equipment Service



Although users of Domiciliary Equipment Service's (DES) equipment are responsible for the general care and cleaning of their equipment, DES provides a repair service for equipment that is either faulty or damaged.

Faulty or damaged equipment may be exchanged for an equivalent item, or if this is not possible, DES will arrange for repairs to be carried out by a DES technician, or one of our qualified contractors.

A repair may occur at the equipment's location or at a workshop, in which case a loan will be organised where necessary.

Any fault or damage that occurs while outside of South Australia becomes the responsibility of the user of the equipment. Any costs incurred for these repairs will not be reimbursed. If the item is not repaired and is brought back to South Australia, a repair may be organised through DES.

Arranging Repairs

Between 8.30 am – 5.00 pm Monday – Friday a repair can be organised either via a phone call or email to DES.

  • 7.00 am - 8.30 am and 5.00 pm - 11.00 pm Mon - Fri
  • 9.00 am - 11.00 pm on weekends and public holidays.

This service is currently only provided in the Adelaide Metro or Greater Adelaide area.

Home Modifications

Once installed, home modifications are the responsibility of the owner, and therefore any repairs are the property owner's responsibility.
