I love the My Health Guide app. It helps me to let the world know how I feel.Martin
Martin’s key worker at Miller’s, Mandy, is using Hear Me Now to help Martin start to manage his Diabetes independently.
From a point of view of time, it’s much quicker. The information is there. It cuts down my time. It’s a super gadget to work with. It shows Martin that there’s this technology that he can use and work independently, and show others how he’s managing in life and succeeding.Mandy, key worker
