Care Companion: new online resource launched
The support and wellbeing of people with caring responsibilities is something that is being addressed with the introduction of a new online resource called Care Companion.
Care Companion was designed by Warwick Medical School and a panel of carers with contributions from WCC, Age UK and the NHS. This useful tool provides the carer with a secure and confidential day-to-day personal profile.
In addition to allowing the carer to update the cared for person’s condition, with handy resources to help with queries and questions, there is a diary for the carer to record thoughts and feelings day-by-day and a mood monitor to encourage them to be aware of their wellbeing. The resource, re-launched in April 2019, has been rolled out across Coventry and Warwickshire and is free to use.
