Living it Up is a three year programme working with five local partnerships across Scotland aimed at empowering people to improve their health and well-being.
Living it Up will deliver innovative and integrated health, care and wellbeing services, information and products via familiar technology enabling people to keep better connected with their communities and those they care for and receive care from. These technologies will include TV, mobile phone, games consoles, computers and tablets.
The five partnership areas are – the Western Isles, Forth Valley, Lothian, Moray and Highland/Argyll & Bute.
It is initially aimed at the over 50s but will also be of benefit to people living with long term conditions, care givers and those who just want to keep healthy, happy and safe.
Working through the Looking Local project Cognovi developed the Discover component of Living it Up, which provides a geospatial search for content from social media, Wikipedia, ALISS and other online directories.
