This FREE website allows you to set up a community of assistance for you and your loved one who needs extra care. This community can last for the duration of an illness or hospitalization, or it could provide help for the remain of your care receiver’s life.
A Painless Way to Organize Help
The way it works is simple. The website has a calendar where you post requests for support. You can request meals for your family, rides to medical appointments or rehabilitation, or just friendly visits. Set visits for times when your care receiver has the most energy or the least discomfort. Rather than leaving your friends, family, and neighbors to guess the best time to visit, or guess what they can do to help, you post it on the Calendar.
Lotsa sends reminders to the members of your community to help coordinate.
You begin by logging in and name yourself as the Community Leader. You can invite those who have offered to help; they find your community online either by its name or your zip code. You can also post progress reports or test results and share good news.
The website hosts webinars that focus on specific caregiving topics and highlights nonprofit partners and their caregiving resources. Each webinar reviews tips and features of Lotsa. An archive of webinar recordings is maintained so you can go back and listen to those you have missed.
This is a wonderful way for you to give others the gift of doing some good deeds
