We are pleased to offer, for free, the Jointly smartphone app that “makes communication and coordination between those who share the care as easy as a text message”.

Through funding from Luton Borough Council the app, which normally costs £2.99, is now available for free on a first-come-first-served basis, to qualifying unpaid Carers in the Luton area.

Watch the Jointly introductory video below:

Take a look at the features to see if it is something that you and those who “share the care” could benefit from:

Jointly is a mobile and online application created by carers for carers. It is designed to make caring a little easier, less stressful and a lot more organised. Use it with others or on your own.

With Jointly you can view a log of recent activity, combine group messaging with other useful features including to-do and medication lists, calendar and more.

Profile: Store useful information about the person you are looking after and access it any time at a click of a button!

Messaging: Communicate with everyone in your Jointly circle at a touch of a button! Simply post a message or upload an image.

Tasks: Keep organised and on top of things by using tasks and task lists. Simply create a task and assign it to any member of your Jointly circle, including yourself, and monitor its status.

Calendar: Create date/time specific events and invite anyone in your circle.

Medications: Keep track of current and past medication of the person you are caring for. You can also upload an image to quickly recognise a medicine.

Contacts: Store useful contacts and access their details anytime, anywhere!

Settings: Manage circle and personal account settings
