Awesome Benefits

This app gives you access to the help you need with everyones pride,
dignity and respect remaining absolutely intact.

Never feel awkward about asking for help

When you are out of action, you may feel vulnerable for a variety of reasons and may be reluctant to ask for help. The person who is receiving the request may be busy or time poor or struggling with their own things and therefore they feel awkward about declining. All of that awkwardness is removed because the app becomes a bit like a social planner but for helping when you’re out of action.

Stay connected with your friends and family

Without a doubt, the number one benefit of the iCare4u app is staying connected. It’s too easy to become isolated, it’s too easy to stay at home, it's too easy to lose contact with those around you. With the app, you are able to form a virtual support hub and that allows you and your friends to stay connected while you receive assistance from your willing helpers.

Rally people in the virtual world to get help in the real world

When someone is out of action for any reason, life still needs to go on around them and for them. This app rallies your family and friends creating a virtual support network that can provide help in the real life world, even though it’s co-ordinated in the virtual world.

How It Works

iCare4u brings people together by matching needs with availability. iCare4u
rallies your family and friends around you, creating a virtual support network that
can provide help in the real life world.

The journey to creating iCare4u was a very personal one for me. In 2005, I was diagnosed with cancer. It changed everything but in a way I had not expected.

I began to see, first hand, the effect my illness was having on those I loved around me. They wanted to help so badly, but they weren’t quite sure what to do, or how. I needed their help, but I was too embarrassed to ask for it.

Talking to others battling illnesses, I knew I was not alone in my frustration. There was a desperate need for communication and connection. As a patient, support from loved ones would be critical in healing, and as a friend or family member of a patient, giving them an outlet to be able to provide that support would enable them to feel connected, useful, present. This is the heart of iCare4u.
