A New Helping Hand for Carers
Over half of all UK households now own a voice assistant like an Alexa. Whilst these nifty little devices may be common, people may not realise just how helpful they can be to manage caring alongside working responsibilities.
For instance, Alexa can be programmed to …
Take hands-free calls;
Act as medicine or appointment reminders;
Check-in with loved ones;
Remind individuals to eat;
Monitor personal safety;
… and that is to name only a few options!
If you are interested in how such technology could help you to manage your caring role alongside other responsibilities, our Carers Into Work team would be happy to chat so please get in touch with our Centre on 0191 2496480 to request this help
