Recommend our trusted library of hand-picked health apps to support those in Staffordshire at risk

Fri 3 Jul 2020

During the current ongoing coronavirus outbreak, we are all adapting to new ways of delivering health and wellbeing guidance and care support to our at-risk residents.

Digital health and wellbeing apps can help older residents or those with long-term conditions to manage their health at home, but there are thousands to choose from and not all apps can be trusted to offer clinical assurance and up to date advice.

To help our most vulnerable manage their health digitally with the most trusted apps that meet their needs, Staffordshire County Council is now offering access to a super easy-to-use Health App Finder tool at www.staffordshire.gov.uk/appfinder.

The tool offers an invaluable resource for volunteers, community organisations and health and care professionals as well as the general public to get access to a library of fully reviewed and handpicked apps during this extraordinary time.

The library is safe and secure to use, and features hundreds of apps independently reviewed and rated. The library features hundreds of apps proven to help manage specific conditions and more general health and wellbeing, including:

• Anxiety and Stress

• Diabetes

• Weight loss & fitness

• Dementia

• Mental Wellbeing

• Cancer

• Muscular and Arthritic conditions

• Stopping Smoking

• Pregnancy

• And hundreds more

Access and recommend apps from our very own health app library now at www.staffordshire.gov.uk/appfinder
