The mi-life website offers an online self-assessment tool for you to decide the type of equipment you may need to help you live a more independent life.
By simply answering a few questions about your needs, the tool allows you to self-assess for:
- Simple daily living aids – like bathing or toileting items
- Telecare equipment and other assistive technology – such as personal alarms in case of falls
- Home improvement agency – adaptations
- Adaptations you might need to your home, such as grab rails
The self-assessment tool is very easy to use and navigate and enables you to self-assess for simple items, without the need to see an occupational therapist.
Key features of the system are:
- Easy access via any device with an internet connection
- A direct link to the mi-life catalogue, enabling you to browse and buy equipment
- Access to news and information
- Access to simple-to-use home adaptation drawing software. Below are images produced by the software, which show how the result would look in your home in 3D.
The system also allows you to sign up for the newsletter, or connect with us on social media.
If, at the end of your self-assessment, the system believes you would benefit from a full assessment with an occupational therapist, it will tell you and let you download a form to request and appointment.
