- Send a signal to the call centre ;
- Vocally contact the centre ;
- Integrate a loved one’s phone number ;
- Automatically locate you through GPS ;
- Incorporate a daily control option ;
- Connect to other devices that protect your home.
The info-educational platform is a meeting place dedicated to listening to our clients and directing them, based on need, toward the different support and aid structures offered in Luxembourg’s health services.
Different health professionals aim to answer your questions and guide you :
- An Occupational Therapist (OT) will advise the client on their choices regarding physical assistance and the adaptation of their home with the goal of optimising independence in their daily activities (movement, hygiene, dressing, etc.). The OT will also be able to analyse your functional capacities.
- A physiotherapist will explain to the client the specifics and procedures of home-care.
- A specialized nurse who works with pain and palliative care will explain the support opportunities provided by new Luxembourg legislation.
- An antenna manager will speak with the client about how the network functions and the steps to covering HELP under dependence insurance. He or she will explain the specifics of the client’s individual care in managing the illness or handicap, and also about the specific treatment protocols.
- A psychologist will discuss psychological support available, what is covered under insurance, and how to apply for receiving psychological support at home under this insurance. He or she will also be able to guide you toward services and institutions that help with specific problems.
The info-educational platform contains information about associations in Luxembourg that are linked to health and can guide you toward appropriate organisations. Today, there are many assistive technologies that adapt to diverse needs; this is why different associations and suppliers allow demonstrations. The bathroom demo provides an initial idea of the various design possibilities and it is possible to test these adaptations in private.
The info-educational service of the HELP network is located in the old janitor’s building at the Emile Mayrisch Hospital Centre, 54, rue Emile Mayrisch in Esch-sur-Alzette.
The service can be visited on request; make an appointment at 26 70 26 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
