Rix Multi Me toolkit
Rix Multi Me toolkit is for carers, health and social care staff, care providers and community organisations to help stay connected to the people you support through a secure social network. Stay connected is a bundle of tools that offers a simple way to stay connected with those who have learning disabilities.
Online communities offer a support network for people to chat and take part in learning and leisure activities online. Carers and other Professionals can structure the support they can offer remotely by helping plan day to day activities, specifically if people are staying at home more after COVID-19.
Health at Home
If an individual needs an NHS service, (unless there is a life-threatening emergency or are advised to attend an appointment) the NHS Health at Home campaign will direct individuals to information about how to contact the GP, order repeat prescriptions, manage wellbeing and existing conditions.
