Fit Homes are new types of housing that are being developed by ourselves, Albyn Housing Society and NHS Highland in partnership with Highland residents and health and social care professionals. They are designed to be attractive homes that people would like to live in. They are highly functional, easily adaptable and more suitable for a wide range of people’s health and mobility needs than existing housing. The “Fit Homes” concept is a technology enabled smart house that promotes wellbeing and preventative health solutions up to and including end of life care. Residents will benefit from digital health and assisted living technologies in a way that has not been possible before.
The concept supports residents to take charge of their own wellbeing. At the same time they can meet their health needs through a system of innovative technology and design. They will be able to both self-manage their support and have enhanced face to face social interaction.
"Fit Homes" is a home for life, not just an end of life solution. The technology enables young people to maintain a sense of wellbeing and morphs as the person responds to the physical and mental changes that life brings.
