Themes

The ADL Smartcare Limited website has a variety of different themes to choose from including a high-contrast colour scheme. You can also view the website in a text-only format.

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.

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.

About the app

Quickly discover how you are ageing by using the LifeCurve™ App, which is underpinned by cutting edge research.

The LifeCurve™ App is just one part of the ADL Smartcare services that shape age related decline.

LifeCurve™ Partners

A LifeCurve™ partner is an authorised organisation that wants to engage with App users to benefit their independence and support learning/research into ageing.

This can be as someone who wishes to provide services, products or activities to App users (e.g. suppliers, local authorities) or access data with permission from App user LifeCurves™ in order to benefit others e.g. researchers. A LifeCurve™ App user is in complete control of which LifeCurve™ Partner they connect with and fully informed of the LifeCurve™ Partner's specific use of data.

LifeCurve™ partners will positively impact an individual's LifeCurve™ by putting content on the App, as well as being able to monitor where they are on it (with express permission). In order to become an ADL Smartcare LifeCurve™ partner, you will need to explain:

  • Your purpose in becoming a LifeCurve™ partner
  • Your conditions as a LifeCurve™ partner
  • The benefits of you becoming a LifeCurve™ partner, to you and to App users

All data that a LifeCurve™ partner wishes to include on the App, will be curated by ADL Smartcare. Our existing Local Authority customers already curate the information and the organisations that they connect with, in their instances of ADL Services.
