MyLiferaft

MyLiferaft is an online place for all your health and well-being information, to help connect you and your carers.

All your information will be stored safely and easily, allowing only those you choose to be able to access it.  It’s not just about the facts and figures; you can store information about you such as “I love a cup of tea with my medication!” or “I’m scared of injections!”  This allows those that care for you to know what helps you and makes you feel better.

The founder of MyLiferaft is Nicola Murgatroyd, her daughter, Faith had Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. Together they faced an uphill struggle managing Faith’s different care needs.  Not one to sit around grumbling about this, Nicola created MyLiferaft for the benefit of everyone caring or being cared for.

 “My personal experiences gave me a first-hand insight into the problems and challenges faced by people who live with a long-term condition. I realised that gaps in shared information across health and social care existed. However, there are ways to make life easier for everyone whatever their circumstances, and that’s what we have created with MyLiferaft – a tool which helps you to let others know what you want.”

Using MyLiferaft lets you:

  • Store your health, well-being and care information (and then control who sees it).
  • Create your hospital passport (information for hospital staff that isn’t all about illness).
  • Keep track and be reminded of appointments and assessments.
  • Share your care information with those who support you.
  • Hear about new technology solutions and how they can help you.

Who Can Use MyLiferaft?

  • A loved one, maybe an older relative or spouse.
  • Someone caring for a child with care needs.
  • A professional carer needing to keep track of your client’s information and wishes.
  • Someone in control of your own care plan but need to keep others in the loop.
  • Someone who just wants to keep track of your general well-being – calendars and diaries.

By creating a MyLiferaft account, you will be taking the first step towards bringing together your health and social care information – reducing repetition and creating a consistent care plan you can share.
