I recently was introduced to this great organization whose vision is creating a world where everyone can give and receive help through the power of community. Since its inception, over 2 million incredible caregivers and volunteers have used Lotsa Helping Hands to support their loved ones.
Most of us know of someone who has suffered from a long-term or terminal illness. Caring for the individual places an incredible strain on individuals and families. In many cases the family knows it needs help but is reluctant to ask or is too overwhelmed to know how to go about getting the help they need - rather than the help people would like to provide. That's where Lotsa Helping Hands comes in.
Lotsa Helping Hands is a private, web-based caregiving coordination service that allows family, friends, neighbors and colleagues to create a community and assist with the daily tasks that become a challenge when caring for an aging loved one or during long-term caregiving. A service of National Alliance for Caregiving, each community includes an intuitive group calendar for scheduling tasks such as coverage or transportation to medical appointments, a platform for securely sharing vital medical, financial, and legal information with designated family members, and customizable sections for posting photos, well wishes, blogs, journals, and messages. Now, when someone asks “what can I do to help?” the answer is “give me your name and email address” – the system takes over and allows people to sign up and start helping.
