Carers UK today makes a pioneering move into the app market with the launch of Jointly – a tool to help families manage care for loved ones alongside increasingly complex lives
A rapidly ageing population coupled with rising life expectancies for those with illness or disability mean care is a huge and growing issue for society.
Across the UK there are 6.5 million carers – half juggling care with work, a third caring for older relatives alongside raising children.
Jointly – available for mobile phones, tablets and computers – offers a simple, practical way to share information and co-ordinate tasks amongst an invited circle who are helping look after a loved one.
