THE AYL STORY

About Access Your Life:

Access Your Life was created in the hope of relieving some of the struggles patients and carers face every day, regardless of their location, finances or diagnosis.

Too many people living with disabilities have been forced to become their own advocates. If they need anything, whether it is a piece of equipment, an appointment with a consultant or a medical investigation they have to FIGHT for it. All of which can be extremely isolating, daunting and difficult due to the number of unreliable sources and endless sales pitches. Something that Lauren and Felix know all about, following the sudden decline in Lauren’s health which inevitably lead to complex care requirements, struggles to access equipment and endless battles relating to her quality of life!

This is why Access Your Life strives to make some of these processes easier and more enjoyable for all. By encouraging people living with disabilities and their carers to share their experiences, to help those in similar situations! Whether that may be in the form of a product review, blog post or an advert for a second-hand device, this is a non-biased community you can trust!
