Whether you work outside the home or you’re a full-time carer at home, you probably wear several other hats: nurse, sitter, cook, bookkeeper, driver and assistant. Keeping track of it all and getting it all done requires a to-do list of epic proportions, and even the most organised person can occasionally tip into a state of carer chaos. Your smartphone or tablet can be a great help and there are many simple, affordable apps to help people get and stay organised.

The tech team at Feros Care has provided its favorite 12 apps for menu planning, health, safety, money management and organising your and your family’s lives.

Staying Organised

CarePartners Mobile

For those who share caring responsibilities amongst two or more people. The carers all have the app installed on their phone and create a ‘community’, where they can chat to the other carers in their group to exchange information about the care recipient, add items to a task list, delegate responsibility and claim responsibility for other tasks.  This way they can also see who is responsible for what, and it allows everyone to have greater peace of mind in knowing all required tasks are being attended to.

Compatibility: iOS, Android

 Task N ToDo’s

A list for all your task and to do’s – but the best bit is you can enter them by talking into your phone! You can set due dates and deadlines for tasks which will sync with your calendar, prioritise tasks and remind you ahead of time about upcoming tasks. And, as it syncs with Google tasks, this can synchronise across your tablet, phone and computer, so you’ll always be reminded regardless of which piece of hardware you are using. Easy to use features such as drag and drop capability to move around and swiping to navigate between tasks makes this app a very easy and quick to use.
