There are many types of technology that can support carers and those being cared for. This page offers some links to technology that is available to support you.

Inclusion of information and links on this page does not necessarily mean we are making a recommendation.







 
 
 

The Jointly App by Carers UK, is an app that makes caring for someone a little easier, less stressful and a lot more organised by making communication and coordination between those who share the care as easy as a text message.

Grandcare - The heart of the GrandCare System is an easy-to-use touchscreen in the home which provides the individual with social communications, instructions, reminders, medication prompts, and web-based entertainment.
Caregivers access the system by logging in to the online Care Portal. Optional wireless activity sensors, environmental sensors, and digital health devices can be added to the system as needed. These devices can be used to notify designated caregivers by phone, email, or text if anything seems amiss or if wellness readings fall out of range.
