what is myhomehelper?

myhomehelper is the innovative new memory aid developed from the personal experience of assisting a family member living with dementia.

The on-line digital display has been specifically designed to support people living with memory impairment and learning difficulties in their own homes. myhomehelper helps to reduce anxiety and isolation and gives peace of mind, reassurance and confidence to family and carers.

Developed from ideas and feedback given from service users and carers in trials of the system over the last 4 years, the user centred design ensures that it is ideal for people with no computer or IT experience and requires no interaction from the user for it to work.

how does it work?

myhomehelper comes pre-installed on a tablet computer that has been configured to run the system optimally from the moment that you turn it on.

A simple set-up system can be accessed by family, friends and carers to tailor the system to suit individual needs via the myhomehelper website, from anywhere that has access to an internet connection - be that at home, work or even on holiday.

It has been designed as an "always on" system and once set-up only needs to be maintained when new activities, appointments or photos etc need adding. The end user does not have to do anything but look at the display occasionally to benefit from it - there is no other interaction required.

created from personal experience

myhomehelper was designed and built by Kevin Marsch. In 2010 Kevin's Mum was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia. Kevin created a basic version of the myhomehelper Diary Screen to let his Mum know where he was and when he was at work or on holiday and how to contact him.

Seeing how effective this was in reducing her anxiety Kevin continued adding features to the system. Positive feedback from carers, doctors and paramedics, led to the local council telehealth team asking to see it. In 2011 Kevin quit his job and formed Simpla Solutions in order to make myhomehelper available for others to benefit from.
