Reading ruler option

Reading Ruler

The reading ruler is to assist you with reading the website. The ruler will follow the movements of your mouse cursor, covering the space above and below to make it easier to read one line at a time.

The dictionary tool

Dictionary

If you double click on a word, you will be able to view its definition from the Macmillan Dictionary. When you double-click on a word, a window opens which lists the different ways a word is used. Pick the most suitable usage and you will be able to read its definition.

If you want to look up words not on this website, you can do this at Macmillan Dictionaries Online.

You also have the option to view the website in a different language. Click on the "Select a language" box and pick a language from the list displayed.

Screen reader

Screen Reader

For blind and visually impaired users we recommend NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access), a free "screen reader" application which reads the text on the screen in a computerised voice. This tool can be used on a variety of different programmes on your computer - not just your web browser or the Smartcare website.

You can control what is read to you by moving the cursor to the relevant area of text with a mouse or the arrows on your keyboard.

Click on the screen reader icon on the tool bar for more information and a link to download the programme on to your computer.

Health

Map every patient's ageing journey

Without the right data and knowledge, it’s impossible to know how well our population is ageing. GPs, healthcare organisations and clinical commissioning groups can assist with medical and surgical help, but what can be done about age-related decline?

Our software gives you the opportunity to map every patient’s ageing journey so you can spot patterns and prevent problems before they arise. It’s now possible to keep track of sudden functional decline, test whether patients are stable enough to go back into the community and ensure every individual gets the right products and support they need.

ADL Smartcare is eager to change the way we manage healthcare for older adults. By providing a framework which allows the identification of early need we are able to modify journeys and stem the flow into mainstream services, transforming the experiences of both individuals and healthcare workers and ultimately reducing the likelihood of patient visits to A&E.
