Liferaft Supporting the Individual
Liferaft is about the person. It is a solution that puts the individual requiring support at the centre of the care circle and empowers them to take ownership. In doing so, we enable the individual to be confident, safe and happy in their daily lives.
Are You Sally?
Sally* is a young woman with a long-term condition and has a full and active life. She has a circle of carers who need 24/7 access to her care and health information (which she updates herself). She wants to know:
- What are my rights as a disabled person?
- What online tools are available to help me manage all my university activities, my doctors & consultants, and send alerts to remind me?
- Is there a tool where I can monitor my diet and nutrition needs?
Are You Janice?
Janice* has a 24/7 care circle, and is unable to update and managed her own information. She relies on her main carer to update her paperwork and communicate the changes in her care. She wants to know:
- What respite care is available for the elderly?
- How can I keep my family updated with my care plans?
- Where can I find out more about social care available in my local community?
- What are the early signs of Alzheimer’s disease?
