Simple devices and apps can help make life easier.
The Jointly App – Sharing care in a central place.
So much to remember? Lots of people to tell? The Jointly App has been created to make things easier for carers. It’s a place to easily store and share information with others in the caring loop. You can set up appointments, allocate tasks, manage medication and save files so that everyone involved in the care of your loved one is kept informed.
The Forum – Connect with other carers on this supportive, online community.
Caring for someone can sometimes be lonely and it’s rarely 9 to 5. Support services aren’t always available when you need them and friends, family or work colleagues might not understand.
Join the friendly Forum online community to access support, information and enjoy online chats with others who care for a loved one or have experience of caring.
Available to carers registered with us, the forum is moderated and managed by Carers UK. You get access by signing up on our website.
About Me Online Course
