Perth Digital Health and Wellbeing Project

New project in partnership with Perth and Kinross Council Health and Social Care. 

What can the project offer me or someone I am working with?

Lead Scotland and Perth and Kinross Council know that people want to live independently in their own homes. They want to continue with their daily routines while maintaining their independence in a safe and secure environment, in a way that contributes to their well-being and quality of life. Through the Digital Health and Well Being Project, a new initiative from Perth and Kinross Health and Social Care Partnership and Lead Scotland, we will help people to use new technology to do exactly this.

Learners who take part in the project will be given 1-1 support to use digital devices to help them stay well at home and a system called MyHomeReach.

MyHomeReach enables independence with the reassurance that family, friends, and health care professionals are only one touch away, reducing 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.

If you don’t have any digital skills or don’t feel confident about using technology the project will provide access to a Learning Coordinator who will work with you and family on a 1-1 basis to help use the equipment. If people don’t have access to a device we can lend equipment for up to 6 months and provide support to access broadband in their homes.

How do I refer myself or someone I am working with?

This free service is open to people, of all ages, who live in the City of Perth, Luncarty and Scone (other areas can be considered) and fulfill one or more of the following criteria: 

  • who have a long term health condition or are caring for someone with a long term health condition or disabled person
  • who feel they need to have a little extra support to stay healthy and well at home and don’t receive any care services
  • who already receive care services but want to use technology to be a bit more independent.
