A Painless Way to Organize Help
With the Help Calendar, you can post requests for support - things like meals for the family, rides to medical appointments, or just stopping by to visit.
Members of your community can quickly find ways to help, and Lotsa will send reminders and help coordinate logistics automatically so nothing falls through the cracks.
"Lotsa allowed me to focus on my wife (most importantly), not be inundated with calls & emails, accurately provide information to all of our friends & family, and also have a simple way to ask for help."
Give Updates, Receive Support
Supporting caregivers, is largely about communication. Announcements make it easy to keep the community in the loop on how things are going, while Well Wishes let the community shower the family with love, posting prayers or notes of encouragement.
"Lotsa has been a wonderful way for our community to communicate needs and organize care visits for our loved one."
Loved ones often need a place to organize and quickly access information on medications, doctors, allergies, insurance, and more. Lotsa gives you a simple, secure place for this information, with easy to use access controls so only the people you want see it.
"Being able to organize my volunteers into designated groups for those who can help with rides and those who can help with child care is a wonderful feature. So practical, but yet it solves a real challenge."

Frequently Asked Questions
Who can create a community?
Anyone can - patients, their caregivers, even family members and friends are welcome to create a Lotsa Helping Hands community.
Does it costs anything?
No - Lotsa Helping Hands communities are always free for you and your community members.
Can more than one person help manage the community?
Once you start a new community you can invite other Coordinators to help manage it. Most communities have more than one coordinator, often including the caregiver and patient. Often coordinators are responsible for a set of tasks - such as managing all the meal deliveries or trips to the doctor.
How do I involve other people to help?
Coordinators can invite as many people into the Community as they wish. Members can volunteer for tasks and send well wishes to the family. Members can also share the link with others so they can request to join the community at any time.
