During this period of lock down we have provided Blackwood Homes and Care tenants with a tablet device and internet connection using our Clever
Cogs system. This has really helped to reduce isolation and support social connection. If you would like our support in this way please contact your housing officer.
Our care provision is enhanced with our bespoke digital system, CleverCogs.
CleverCogs is a digital system we provide to our customers with a touch screen home hub tablet device. We have installed nearly 100 of these devices in customers’ homes and our care homes across Scotland. They enable people to stay in touch with friends and family, even video chatting with them. They can catch up on their interests, access information they want to see and receive convenient reminders of any appointments, care visits or medication they need to take. It enables us to build a personalised care package around the individual taking into account both formal and informal care needs.
The system works across all aspects of an individual’s care, housing and support needs. Currently the system features Care Support, Safety Measures, Home Automation, Access to the Internet, Digital Inclusion as well as Health & Wellbeing.
CleverCogs will become a fully integrated element of our care service over the next year and become part of our unique, high quality services across Scotland.
