The AskSARA website could make life easier for you.

A new website called AskSARA has been launched in Warwickshire that shows people gadgets and solutions that can make life easier for them.

The easy-to-use website, can be found at, and helps improve people’s access to a range of ‘self-help’ smart technology and associated services in Warwickshire – from automatic pill dispensers to reminder clocks, personal alarms, and general equipment to help make daily activities easier – so they can stay well for longer.

It has been launched by Warwickshire County Council as part of their commitment, through the Warwickshire Cares Better Together programme, to give people better access to Assistive Technology and to help them focus on their strengths.

What kind of information is available on AskSARA?

From cooking and bathing to taking medication, or doing hobbies and daily tasks, AskSARA provides information, advice and guidance on smart gadgets and solutions (Assistive Technology) that can enable people to help themselves.

The website signposts people to a whole range of solutions based on someone's personal needs and produces an individual report with suggested ideas, based on the answers to some simple, multiple-choice questions.

For example, if a person needs help remembering to take their medication, it might suggest an automatic pill dispenser or a digital reminder clock; or if someone needs help with staying hydrated or has mobility difficulties as a result of a health condition, AskSARA may suggest the use of a special ‘hand steady’ mug, a falls detector ‘watch’, or a personal alarm.

This could reduce their reliance on friends, family and professional carers, and help them to stay well in their own home.
