Get to know Living Well Falkirk with our new OLLE course

A new OLLE course is available to help colleagues learn more about Living Well Falkirk and its capabilities.

What is Living Well Falkirk?
Living Well is Falkirk Health and Social Care Partnership’s self-assessment and advice service, providing local people with easy access to information and support. With a focus on prevention, the service is designed to provide help at an earlier stage than compared to when formal health or social care services are needed.

The Living Well Falkirk website ( was built on the ADL Smartcare platform and launched in 2018 with a focus on healthy ageing. By mapping a user’s position on a LifeCurveTM and using self-assessment, the platform can provide advice and information as well as the ability to order some items of equipment to help individuals live as independently as possible.

Prior to the impact of the pandemic, the Living Well website was also supported by the in-person Living Well Centre model, offering people direct access to advice with the help of trained staff. The Partnership is now making plans to return to this in-person model.
