Smart Technology Advisory

What is smart technology?

Smart technology allows you to live safely and independently at home with technology that is matched to your needs.

Regardless of your current technology knowledge or digital use, our Smart Technology Occupational Therapist (OT) will assess your needs or concerns and recommend technology that will best suit you. This could be assistance to connect with family and friends online, devices to prompt and remind, automated or voice-activated household appliances, or technology that gives you the confidence to get out and about.

Following the delivery of your technology, our OT will visit you again to tailor it to you and ensure you are comfortable with its use.

What types of technology are available?
  • ipads or android tablets
  • computers and mobile phones, plus apps to help with daily life
  • TV portal – talk with family and friends via your TV
  • personal alarms and smart watches
  • robot vacuum cleaners, lawnmowers, window cleaners
  • smart home lighting and other smart devices
  • smart doorbells, door locks, security cameras
  • google home and other voice-activated devices to control your smart home
  • emerging technologies that support social connection
  • gaming technologies to participate in physical activity or connect with family and friends
  • adaptive devices to support using chosen technologies (e.g. stylus, straps)
  • monitoring systems that track and predict behaviour
  • devices that support people with dementia, e.g. with memory prompts and safety
  • Tile trackers that help you track and find lost keys/phone/remote etc.
  • And more – the list is growing all the time
What happens next?

Once you are using your new technology, you may be interested in our Smart Technology coaching and/or Smart Technology setup and expert IT help services to ensure you get the most out of your devices.

We may also be able to assist with the purchase of your Smart Technology.

Need a weekend pick-me-up? You'll be inspired by these 'Glam-mas'!
The ‘Fashion Grandmas’ known as 'Glam-mas' are a group of influencers over 60 who are showing China that age is no barrier to elegance. They do fashion live-streams, share positive messages about ageing, and speak out about domestic violence.
"Your life is grey if you are always afraid of ageing and death," said Lin Wei, 64, explaining her philosophy on growing older and enthusiasm for donning stylish clothes and makeup.
"You are old, you have wrinkles, you don't have too much energy, or your figure becomes baggy. But this is something you can't go against, so you need to face it with positivity."
