Buckingham Caddy


What is the Buckingham caddy for?

This leaflet is for patients who have been assessed as needing a Buckingham caddy to improve independence in the home. It is also for the families, carers and professionals supporting you.

The caddy can help you to transport daily items such as a hot drink or plate of food when you are moving around your home.

  • outdoors
  • through narrow doors and down steps
  • in a cluttered environment
  • to transport items that may cause the plastic to melt such as hot cooking pots and pans.

How to fit a Buckingham caddy

  1. Place the moulded slot behind the small compartment on the top of your walking frame.
