Fife Health and Social Care Partnership has launched a new online self-assessment called ‘Smart Life in Fife’.

The tool will ask you a number of questions about your health and daily living. The results will enable people to access advice, services, recommendations or simply purchase daily living solutions such as bathing and kitchen equipment or rails.

These vital services can make everyday activities easier and enable people to live more independently at home for longer.
