New Digital Health and Wellbeing App

14th August 2018

The Perth and Kinross Health and Social Care Partnership and LEAD Scotland have introduced a new digital health and wellbeing project designed to enable individuals to live independently.

The project is called Tech for Change and is a health and wellbeing project using digital technology to promote independence and reduce social isolation.

Tech for Change offers one to one support and uses digital devices to help people stay well at home with a new app called ‘MyHomeReach’.

‘MyHomeReach’ allows independence for users with the reassurance that family, friends, and health care professionals are only one touch away. The software is designed to reduce stress and concern of isolation.

This unique solution makes it easy, affordable, and convenient to connect people with their community i.e. care professionals, family members and social services.

In the event potential users don’t feel confident about using technology the project will provide access to a digital learning coordinator from LEAD Scotland who will work with them on a one-to-one basis to help use the equipment.

Access to a digital device is available with the option to borrow a tablet for up to 6 months as well as access to temporary broadband access from users’ own homes.

This project is currently open to individuals who:
• live in Perth City; 
• have a long term health condition;
• feel they need to have a little extra support to stay healthy and well at home and don’t receive any care services; 
• currently receive care services but want to use technology to help do more things for themselves.

If you or someone you know may be interested and would like to find out more information contact TEC@pkc.gov.uk for a referral form.
