Putting the individual and their information at the centre of the care circle, MyLiferaft supports the coordination of effective care provision across multiple care resources.
Nothing really prepares you for parenthood, and caring for a child with additional needs carries extra challenges. As a working mother and parent carer for her daughter Faith (who had complex care needs and multiple health issues), Nicola Murgatroyd, the founder of MyLiferaft, understands the world of being a parent carer and wanted to find a way to make life easier for families.
Murgatroyd explains, “I realised the lack of joined up care meant that parents, carers, education and medical professionals frequently held the same information, but none of it was shared. I wished there was one place I could hold all our information, and then share it with others. This is what we have created with MyLiferaft – a secure, web-based system, to support families managing extra care related work; but which also helps with all the aspects of modern day living”.
MyLiferaft provides a secure place online to store, manage and update all the details about the person you care for; all their health, care, social and well-being needs. The information stored within MyLiferaft enables you manage your lives so that you can be more prepared for care and medical meetings and assessments, leaving you and your loved one more time to enjoy life.
Accessed on the web from a tablet, laptop or phone, MyLiferaft enables you to keep your care network up-to-date, from anywhere at any-time. You control and decide who gets what information, and when. The system can also auto populate forms such as the DLA, PIP and Blue Badge.
“I am so excited about the future of MyLiferaft and the benefits that it will bring. We have taken input from users, carers, the cared for, and health professionals to develop the functionality and design of the product. Over the next few months we are looking to launch an App as well as including voice technology, accessibility and integration in the near future to increase the reach and usability of MyLiferaft.”
