      where to go for different situations.
      local council, nhs, local charity, national.
      what a hospice can do.
      help with benefits.
      training - is there any?
      carers support groups.
      transport.

      all i can think of. ive found this difficult and when given so much info how to use it. also difficult to figure out who is where on the food chain.

        Equipment, from boogie boards to wheelchairs and all points in between, plus what can be supplied and by whom and what you have to purchase for yourself.

          Thank you Denise and SallyAnn. Excellent points.

          My app includes provision for the various NHS services and contact information for each service, notes, appointment times and more.

          There is provision to add more points of reference, like the local hospice, and I am looking to add Google Maps.

          Yes, I thought of that too, where the app automatically generates emails to the Government services, like DWP, HMRC etc. TO DO. It also may email and text anyone in the app too with weekly usage reports etc.

          There is a "Task Scheduler" so that the day's routine tasks will get done. For example, doing the ironing; putting the bins out; bringing the bins in. For more complex tasks a video may provide instructions to perform the task: Setting up a Nippy etc.

          Yes, my app condenses various paper files, currently provided by the NHS into a single well ordered place that lives on the Cloud.

          There is "Provisions" in "Care". Hundreds of items may be entered. From rubber gloves, pads and other essential items through to larger items, for example: The hoist.

          I have a video of how to charge the wheelchair. Even apparently simple tasks can become impossible with well concealed charging points.

          I am unfamiliar with a boogie board but I have ideas on how to improve upon Grid3 speech in my app. Speech is not straightforward but I guess Applied Intelligence and AI will have to play a part.

          Yes, good point, assignments of responsibilities would be informative.

          The comprehensive care app covers more ground that assists a bed bound person.

          Thanks again Denise and SallyAnn.

              look i dont know about this but im interested in doing a wet room so im not sure now what is required but id like to do it once and not have to pay a fortune and find i have to do it again and live in a building site. so specifications like loo height, movement of chair that kind of thing. id like to be talk to a plumber and not feel stupid. have some knowledge to make sure im not being talked into something i dont want or need. is that something you can do?

              probably could do with knowing things like where to go for help ie council, OT.

                  Get the best carer you have to do it while you make a .mp4 video Matt. The carer should fully explain the key steps in the process. Your device/laptop will play it when you open the file.

                  Yes Denise, a search for "Wet rooms" will take you to the OT's details. Love and kisses xxxx

                      As well as task scheduler maybe a calendar link to help plan when you need to arrange care?

                        Yeah a calendar for everything . Appointments, supermarket delivery, prescriptions.

                        I've got so many bits of paper and telephone numbers that I've now got on a piece of card with nhs numbers, hospital number and even my own telephone number.

                        what about whom/who to inform about vulnerable people. Im expecting a visit from the fire department 🤔

                        lots of love and hugs

                          Hi Matt, it is best to explain EVERYTHING, think about when you may get poorly and an unknown carer has to perform the task. They need to know where the essential items are kept to perform the task, cleaning solutions for example.

                          Tasks are split into 3 categories: Everyday; week tasks and random.

                          When the carer logs in, the care tasks for the day are shown. The carer acknowledges that the task is done.

                          Tasks are allocated to the days of the week.

                            With the greatest respect Graham I have enough in my limited life and I really don't want to be involved. I am happy to come up with ideas but that's it. Sorry.
