Caring for someone

5. Keys to Care app

Keys to Care is a free app developed by the Relatives and Residents Association. It provides information and advice on the key things to think about, ask and do, if you're to care well for a dependent older person, either in residential care or at home.

The app gives all carers a check list of what matters, and a reassurance that you're doing the right thing, for the person you care for.

It includes guidance on:

  • end of life care
  • privacy and choice
  • the care plan
  • daily life
  • dementia
  • emergencies

If you're an iPhone user, you can download the app from the App Store or iTunes. For Android users, search 'Keys to Care' using quotation marks.
