How It Works

Discover how Lotsa Helping Hands makes caregiver support simple and efficient.

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 automatically so nothing falls through the cracks.

Give Updates, Receive Support

Supporting caregivers, is largely about communication. Announcements make it easy to keep the community in the loop. Send Well Wishes to loved ones, post prayers or notes of encouragement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can create a care team?

Anyone can - patients, caregivers, even family members and friends are welcome to create a Lotsa Helping Hands care team.

Does it cost anything?

No - Lotsa Helping Hands communities are always free for you and your team members.

Can more than one person help manage the care team?

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 care team 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.
