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.
