We support, inform and speak on behalf of older people in care


Keys to Care App


Free for Apple or Android mobiles and tablets, the Keys to Care App is another essential tool for everyone with responsibility for older care.


To keep with you wherever you are, the app brings together all the Keys to Care resources.

A click from each Key in this friendly App takes you instantly to the more detailed Keynote on the same topic, to help further discussion and study.

image“We are often asked how services can improve and one thing I say is ‘use what works’. The Keys to Care app will help care workers do just that in such an easy, accessible way it will be an enormous benefit for people using services.” – Andrea Sutcliffe, Chief Inspector of Social Care, CQC

imageThe Keys App enhances the value of the physical Keys rather than replacing them: the extra dimension it can add is shown in our recent video made in a real care setting – our thanks to the Order of St John Care Trust and all who took part. (Click on the picture and follow the link to play.)

So please try out both together, and let us know what you think: we are always delighted to hear of your experience of using our resources in actual practice, and any comments or suggestions for improvement in later versions.
