There’s an app for that

Did I, or didn’t I? It can be hard to remember what you did this morning, let alone yesterday. And recalling which home carer is coming, on which day and for what purpose, can test anyone’s memory – not to mention all other, everyday things we have to keep track of. But now there’s an app or online portal designed for just about everything you can think of. Whether you’re a tech newbie or a pro, this stuff is a serious game changer.

Let’s start with MyFeros, our customised, self-serve portal available to Feros Care customers on any smart device – at any time. MyFeros lets you log in to see everything from which carer is coming each day, to how much remains in your funding package. Plus if you’ve been looking for a reason to get Google Home, we have one. Just sync MyFeros with Google Home and take company of your kingdom from the comfort of your chair. With simple voice commands you can easily confirm appointments, book a new service or ask when your next carer is due.

If you’re anything like us, any smart tech that makes life easier is a must. A wide range of useful aged care apps can be easily synced with Google Home too, while your phone or smart device can also help you stay safe, organised and connected. Here are just a few ideas we know you’re going to love…
