The Assistive Technology and Telehealthcare Team (ATT) at Cambridgeshire County Council have recently launched the Carers UK App ‘Jointly’(www.jointlyapp.com). The ‘Jointly’ app can be downloaded for free by using the access code on the attached leaflet. The app makes sharing care with others easier, less stressful and a bit more organised and was designed by carers.
- One central place to store and share information about the person being looked after.
- Simple, intuitive group communication to keep everyone informed and better connected.
- Shared task lists and calendar to help co-ordinate responsibilities and organise what needs to be done.
This app aims to support informal carers to try using new technologies to help manage caring responsibilities.
