The people who use SOL Connect all use the team in different ways. Some people who use the team love technology and love looking at how different forms of technology can enhance their independence. On the other hand there are some people who still want to be independent but don’t want to focus on things such as the SOL Connect hubs.
One person that typifies this is Ian. He has been using SOL Connect for the past year yet doesn’t have a hub or medication dispenser or any other cutting edge equipment that SOL Connect can provide. He uses SOL Connect in a way that suits him.
The Connect team call Ian a couple of times a day, when his SOL team aren’t in his home, to make sure that he’s safe, in the form of a welfare call, and just to have a friendly voice at the other end of the phone to talk to about his day.
