What is MyLiferaft?

MyLiferaft is an innovative and easy way to stay on top of all the information that comes with being a Carer and looking after the person you care for – and share it with the people who need it.  It’s a secure place online where you can keep and update all the details about an individual’s health, care and well-being. Through a tablet, laptop or phone, you can keep your care network up to date, on screen or on paper. You decide who gets what information, and when.

Throughout history, people have cared for others.   In the 21st century, husbands, wives, children, parents, neighbours and paid carers continue to underline what is human.  Every second of the day and night, the silent army works.   Care Radio UK is dedicated to carers, and those they care for.   MyLiferaft is delighted to enable this support.

Nicola Murgatroyd – Parent Carer for Faith (died 2010 aged 28) and who had multiple disabilities, and founder of MyLiferaft.

Why Use MyLiferaft

Looking after a person with a long-term condition or special need can be exhausting. Meetings, appointments, assessments.  Forms to fill in. And a lot of information to absorb, manage and stay on top of. You and the person you care for can easily feel disempowered, and not in control.

MyLiferaft puts you back in charge. It gives you a single store of real-time. It’s yours to own and manage, from a tablet, laptop or phone.

You can:

  • share information with people who support you
  • access information for filling in multiple forms/assessments, wherever you are.
  • create essential reports, like a summary of needs, a list of medications, or a pre-populated DLA form
  • engaging wider support teams including health, social care and school

MyLiferaft also lets you run and share calendars, set goal setting, keep a journal and much more.
