Appliances and aids

The Department of Veterans' Affairs provides aids and appliances through the Rehabilitation Appliances Program. The aim of this program is to assist entitled veterans, war widows and widowers, and dependants to be as independent and self-reliant as possible in their own home.

The program provides safe and appropriate equipment according to the specific needs of the entitled person. All Gold Card holders are eligible for Rehabilitation Appliances, while White Card holders may be eligible for appliances relating to their clinical needs. As of July 2007, veterans from allied countries are also eligible for RAP or home modifications relating to accepted disabilities.
