Link-ages works by securely connecting 2 or more users so that they can communicate using the features of the platform. The main user use the Hub app, which is designed for use on tablet devices by older, vulnerable or inexperienced users. Friends and family use the Go app on a smartphone. Up to 10 Go users can connect to one Hub subscription.
When you download Link-ages, you will be asked to identify what sort of user you are. This allows us to present Link-ages to you in the best way. If you are using Link-ages provided by a care organisation, you will be given a license key to allow you to access the service. If you are using Link-ages independently (i.e. not as part of a care facility package), you can start a subscription when you download the app.
Once you have signed in, you will be able to link securely with other family and friends using Link-ages in a safe way that prevents anyone you don't know from contacting you. For more information on what you can do with Link-ages, visit the Features page, or alternatively, if you are part of a care home package, contact the home for more information.
