Residents in North Lincolnshire are being invited to register for a new trial that brings peace of mind to those worried about an elderly loved one living alone.

The Home Hub, developed by local company Bridgit Care, offers an innovative new way for family members to stay connected.

Whether you are at home, at work or on the move, you will be able to check-in on your loved one, receiving all important reassurances at your convenience.

This includes:

  • Monitoring the home environment
  • Monitoring physical health
  • Monitoring their feelings & mental health
  • Scheduling appointments
  • Setting alerts & medication reminders
  • Sending text messages for simple responses

In a further boost, the Home Hub doesn’t need access to WiFi or an internet connection to work.

The free trial is backed by NHS England, SBRI and North Lincolnshire Council, who are passionately committed to ensuring those in need stay safe and well, living independently in their own homes.
