Mi (More Independent) for Carers

Mi (More Independent) for Carers 

As a partner of Mi, Local Solutions has a team who work with
Liverpool Carers and the people they care for to promote use of and access to
Life Enhancing Technologies (LETs). The team also provide impartial advice and information about support services that are available as well as signposting to specialist organisations.

In partnership with Mi, our team are engaging Carers and the people they care for to take control of their own health and wellbeing by raising awareness of the technologies available to them which  can help to make their everyday life easier and give them peace of mind.  We are encouraging Carers to take advantage of opportunities in their community, as well as utilise the facilities at the Carers centre, including the Carers Wellness Zone (a high tech gym which offers personal training sessions) and various healthy lifestyle and wellbeing activities. We take a holistic and person-centred approach to supporting Carers in order to help them feel supported in their individual situation.

Examples of the technologies include:

A fall detector which alerts a 24 hour helpline monitoring centre

A bogus caller panic button which, when pressed, discreetly alerts a 24 hour helpline monitoring centre

A voice prompt, which can be located near your front door with a pre-recorded message of your choice to prompt you with essential reminders.

For further information about access to Life Enhancing Technologies (LETs) contact Linda Booker or Megan Evans on:
