"Caring for a loved one can be stressful with everything often falling to one person. YooToo means that it no longer has to be that way."

What is ‘YooToo’ and how is it of any use to me?

⏱️ 2 minute read

What is ‘YooToo’ and how is it of any use to me or my family? Those are two things that everyone will wonder when they first see any of our online activity.

It’s a perfectly fair question. In a world where so many things are competing for a person’s attention, if something isn’t immediately obvious then the natural thing is to just carry on scrolling.

Spread the tasks

So here’s the quick answer: YooToo is an app. Before lockdown, it was mainly being used by what are known as ‘sandwich carers’ – people, the majority of them women in their 40’s, who not only have a young family, but also an unwell, disabled or elderly parent to look after on top of holding down a full time job. YooToo was being used to spread the tasks so that the responsibility for a loved one didn’t overwhelm the main carer.

A surge of new users

Since lockdown, YooToo has seen a surge of new users (helped along by it now being free) who want to coordinate the care of a loved one in isolation, but why not just do that via WhatsApp? Well, that was covered in another blog entry (read it HERE) but the simple answer is that too many important details get lost, and messaging apps don't have features such as alerts about a missed dose of important medication, or a feature that makes a return home from hospital easier, or, actually, any of the things that have made YooToo so popular of late.

Easy to view, easy to manage and easy to get started

The whole point of YooToo is that if you have a loved one that needs looking after, then everything to do with their care is all in one place and everyone involved will know exactly what’s happening and what part they are playing. Not only that, but it’s all organised in a simple way that’s easy to view, easy to manage and easy to get started.
