Did you know that there is an estimated seven million carers in the UK. And by 2030, the number of carers will have increased by 3.4 million. 

As the world of caregivers grow, they need every tool possible to manage all that caregiving throws at them. Caregiving platforms such as No More Grapes can be used to help manage the many aspects of care.  

Caregiving can be extremely overwhelming, and both professional and family caregivers need so much support. Managing all that is needed to look after someone can be a fulltime job, and needs lots of coordination. Free to use platforms such as No More Grapes helps caregivers maintain and update important information, get appointment reminders, keep a log of activities, coordinate various other caregivers and stay in touch with and pass on updates and photos to family and friends.

Catering to any type of serious illness or injury, No More Grapes makes caregiving life much easier.

"It's a perfect solution for a family that rallies around a loved one in need of care, and for caregivers of those facing surgeries, rehabilitation, and procedures that go along with conditions such as cancer, heart disease or alzeimers," says Founder Richard Boardman.

The website enables multiple caregivers and family members to share pertinent information, such as updates, appointments and arranging care. It helps caregivers keep connected with family members and friends, so they can manage support and be supported, taking away the loneliness and often overwhelming role of a caregiver.

It’s excellent for storing and sharing information, and for knowing that it’s completely secure. The technology also enables everyone involved to monitor a loved one’s needs without being intrusive, even when working or long distances away.
