For adults with learning disabilities
People with learning disabilities often have difficulty managing complex information that comes their way, including information about their health and the care they receive.
My Health Guide provides a way for people to hold on to and make sense of the information they are given about their health and wellbeing.
My Health Guide enables people to
- Capture what matters to them in a single user-friendly place
- Add content in their preferred format: text, images, audio or video
- Share information with carers and health professionals
- Establish better quality relationships with support staff and health professionals
Before, it would have been two professionals talking. Now the patient is at the heart of that. He’s owning that information, and sharing it with us because he wants to.
