There are so many Apps being developed all the time; to make everyday life easier to manage and promote independence and safety at home and when out and about. The ILC Occupational Therapists have searched for some that we think could be helpful and you can read about them here. These Apps are produced and maintained by third parties and are included as information not as a recommendation. See our Apps disclaimer.
Here are some Apps that we found useful for carer support.

This App is for enabling the people who are involved in care for a friend or family member to join their own ‘care circle’ with access to a shared calendar and message site.
