New mobile app "AllowMe!" helps create a community of care around a person at the end of their life

Hi all,

 

This is from Palliative Care Australia, discussed in their recent web post:

 

Palliative Care Australia (PCA) is proud to announce the release of a new mobile app, AllowMe!. The app assists people who are caring for someone with a life-limiting illness by mobilising their existing community to help with practical tasks. PCA developed AllowMe! in response to feedback from carers, people with a terminal illness and friends and family members telling us:
 

  • How caring for someone with a life-limiting illness is rewarding but can also be emotionally and physically demanding without support from others.
  • How difficult it is to ask for help from extended family and friends
  • People not knowing how to help, not wanting to say the wrong thing or ‘get in the way’.
  • How difficult it can be for the person with a life-limiting illness to stay connected with their extended network, which can lead to feelings of isolation and loss.
  • People may experience anticipatory grief whilst caring for someone with a terminal illness.
