Family Caregiving 101

Lotsa Helping Hands
 
Through the Lotsa Helping Hands website, visitors may create their own caregiving site to coordinate support needed for the caregiver and care recipient. Lotsa Helping Hands is a free caregiving coordination web service that provides a private, group calendar where tasks for which a caregiver needs assistance can be posted. Family and friends may visit the site and sign up online for a task. The website generates a summary report showing who has volunteered for which tasks and which tasks remain unassigned. The site tracks each task and notification and reminder emails are sent to the appropriate parties.
