Why we recommend Lifted
Lifted was co-founded by Rachael Crook after she struggled to find great care for her mum when she was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia aged 56, so the whole team really understand the challenges dementia can bring. Their passion shines through and the team is incredibly empathetic.
Lifted offers complete transparency through their innovative mobile app. This gives you instant updates on your phone when carers arrive and leave - no more wondering if a care visit took place! The app also lets you read a summary of what the carer and your loved one got up to so you can stay connected wherever you are. You can leave reviews and get to know your carer before they arrive and this can really help reassure families at a difficult time.
