Apply for AADL benefits
You must first be assessed by a health care professional to determine your basic medical needs and eligibility for the program. Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL) cannot refund clients who purchase their own medical equipment and supplies before being assessed and authorized for the equipment and supplies.
If you require oxygen, orthotics, prosthetics or hearing aids, your assessment will be done by a health care professional from an approved AADL specialty vendor.
- Find an approved vendor
- Contact AADL, your local hospital or health care centre, or call Health Link at 811 for more information on receiving these benefits.
- For other benefits, please contact your local hospital or health care centre for an assessment by an approved AADL authorizer, or contact Health Link Alberta for more information on contacting an assessor in your area.

Obtaining AADL benefits
You must buy your medical equipment or supplies from an approved AADL vendor. Approved vendors include some home health care stores, pharmacies, home oxygen suppliers and hearing aid vendors.
- Your authorizer will provide you with a list of at least 3 vendors or you may choose from the approved vendor list.
Large equipment, such as wheelchairs and hospital beds, is purchased by AADL and delivered to your residence.
