CareOnLine is an award winning service provided by Leicestershire County Council's Adults and Communities, to help vulnerable adults in the community, such as Older People, People with Disabilities and Carers to use computers and the Internet.
We provide a home visit service for advice, support and training to people who have difficulty leaving their home. Our services are designed for people with little or no previous experience of using a computer or people who can no longer use them because of medical condition or age. We can talk to you about how a computer can help your life; you might want information on home care services, have shopping delivered to your door or explore new ways of keeping in touch with family and friends you no longer see. We look for ways to help improve your life and advise on the best equipment to meet your needs.
