Many of us have first-hand experience seeing and helping family members in care, so we understand the difficulties faced and the difference a great digital care system can make.
Read each of our personal stories, to understand more about our motivations.
"Trust in care is essential. It’s established through transparency and peace of mind, knowing that loved ones are looked after to the highest standards. Transparency protects those being cared for and gives staff assurances. I believe our platform brings this level of trust.
"My grandad lives in a nursing home that uses Log my Care. It helps staff ensure his care plan is delivered correctly and that nothing gets missed during shift changeovers. Inevitably, he’s been admitted to hospital and his emergency admission pack created by our digital platform, has made it easy and quick for medical staff to know what his care looks like, from medication to assistance with eating.
"I know he’s looked after well because the transparency gained through our technology, gives me complete confidence in his carers. I’m so proud that the tools we’ve developed support him daily."
"I met Sam whilst we were studying engineering together at Oxford. After spending time working in big data, health technology and genetics, I decided I wanted to help create a platform that positively impacts people’s lives. So, I joined Sam in his journey to create Log my Care and haven’t looked back.
"My work is heavily influenced by my personal experience of care, after seeing my grandfather spend the final five years of his life in a residential home and becoming familiar with the issues the care staff faced, like updating families and close friends.
"My long-term vision with Log my Care is to make social care preventative rather than reactive, allowing us to predict changes in someone’s health before they actually occur."
"I’ve always wanted to make a positive difference through my work, so I’m excited to be part of an organisation that’s partnering with service providers across the UK to make their lives easier!
"I have relatives who are supported by carers and it’s incredibly motivating to know that I’m helping improve the sector.
"Day-to-day, you can usually find me on the other side of our live chat, so don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions you might have – I'm always happy to help."
"I work closely with our product, making improvements based on our users' needs to ensure Log my Care the easiest to use care management platform out there!
"I really believe in what we do at Log my Care - every day I wake up and know I'm having a positive impact on people’s lives, and that feels pretty special."
"For me, care is about looking after the most vulnerable and ensuring they’re provided for, loved and valued. And that’s exactly what Log my Care does!
"As a developer, I help to build the tools carers use to really engage with those they service, by tending to their needs and letting people know they matter.
"I’m proud to be a member of the Log my Care family because I know everything I do makes a real difference to people’s lives."
"I always wondered why so many carer or support worker roles were listed on job boards. But after my nan was taken into care, I quickly saw just how much people had to do with so few resources. I soon realised why holding onto these workers was tough. They don't have the resources or funding to deliver enough positive experiences through care, often leaving people to feel like they're doing a thankless job. So, it's a constant struggle for the sector.
"I found it very difficult to visit my nan's care home because it felt consumed by struggle. I noticed staff struggle to perform their duties properly, residents struggle with age or illness, and families struggle to comfort loved ones. Even my nan, who once had all the strength in the world, struggled to hold onto her former self.
"But Log my Care is a powerful tool. It can save staff hours of paperwork, involve residents in their care plans, and give families peace of mind their loved ones are receiving the proper care. It can help staff deliver more personalised care, give owners better views on resources and stop organisations from struggling.
"I'm looking forward to the day I can walk into a care home, like the one my nan used to be in, and sense contentment or joy instead of struggle. When I sense that, I will know the sector has shifted and that our company played a significant part in making that happen."
"As a teenager, I watched both of my grandmothers look after their mums, one at home and the other in assisted living. What they did truly inspired me.
"Years later, I became a care giver myself. There were moments I came close to giving up and longed for professional support - caring for others is enriching but also exhausting. So, I have the utmost respect for care professionals who do it day-in day-out.
"Carers should be supported and I’m proud to be part of Log my Care doing exactly that. I believe that our digital platform can free up time and energy, allowing support workers to invest time into the moments that really matter, where people feel heard and appreciated."
"My family has first-hand experience of the invaluable contribution of carers to our society and I'm delighted to be part of a team that's working to make their lives easier.
"I help spread the word about our work and I'm on a mission to make sure everyone knows Log my Care is transforming the future of social care."
"When I was at university, my grandad was diagnosed with bowel cancer. His health soon deteriorated to a point where he couldn’t look after himself anymore. So, my parents stepped in to become his full-time carers, to fulfil his request to stay at home.
"The way they cared for him was a testament to their characters and the love and respect they had for him. I can’t thank them enough for everything they did and the sacrifices they made.
"The experience got me thinking about what I could do to give back to carers, like my mum and dad, and when I found Log my Care, I knew it was the perfect way for me to do that.
"I truly believe that our platform can help save lives."
"For me, it's crucial to work for a company that’s solving a problem. At Log my Care, I get to help care services take care of the vulnerable people they support.
"I get to help provide carers with a solution that makes their jobs easier by removing unnecessary paperwork, giving them management of data, to see the bigger picture and be more efficient."
"Growing up, I spent a lot of time during holidays and after school helping out at a local care home. I saw the difference good care can have on people’s lives and how digital care management can improve this.
"After being made redundant during the COVID-19 pandemic, I volunteered at the care home my parents run. It reminded me how much I loved spending time with residents when I was a kid and how a residential home can be a great place to live.
"So, when an opportunity came up at Log my Care, I knew I had to take it. Now, I’m making a difference once again, and give carers the digital tools to keep standards high, residents safe and families content."
"I started working in social care when I was 17 years old and fell in love with the sector! I’ve spent the majority of my career working in both care homes and home care, so know first-hand how tough it can be as a frontline member of staff. But nowadays, I’m a Regional Business Manager helping support services in my local area.
"I enjoy raising awareness about the sector and over the last couple of years I’ve led numerous campaigns and petitions, including calls for the government to see and treat care workers as skilled professionals.
"At Log my Care, I write weekly blogs, offering my advice and thoughts on key topics throughout social care."
