Link-ages features make communication easy

Link-ages has been designed with features to make digital communication safe, secure and private

The features built into the Link-ages Platform have been created to make keeping in touch with your loved ones as simple as possible, while keeping everyone safe and secure.

Made for Care Organisations

Link-ages has features specifically for care organisations. Carers can send messages and reminders to Hub users and, with appropriate permissions, share updates with nominated family members. These features promote greater engagement between carers, residents and their families and can give greater reassurance that the resident is receiving the highest standards of care.

Made for Families

Link-ages was created to help all members of the family stay in touch more easily. It is designed to be easy to use by everyone and does not require special or expensive hardware to function. Link-ages works with the devices many people have already: smartphones and tablet devices. Link-ages is a subscription service so that we can keep the platform ad-free.

A Closed Network

The Link-ages platform is a closed network, meaning that unlike traditional social media apps, friends and family can only join if they have been invited by the Hub user. This prevents unsolicited 'friend requests' and ensures that the Hub user is connected to those that matter most: close family and friends.

Simple, Easy to Use Interface

Link-ages has been designed with a simple, clean and clutter free interface to make learning and using Link-ages as easy as possible. Because Link-ages is a subscription service, there are no adverts to distract or take the user out of the app.

Voice and Text Messaging for Families

Link-ages features secure direct messaging by voice or text between family members. Messages can be sent one to one, or groups can be created so everyone is involved. The messaging features in Link-ages provides a simple way to keep everyone up to date, send well wishes and plan social occasions. Attach photos and diary events to messages to send them straight to the Hub user's Gallery or Calendar.

Diary and Calendar

Whether it is a relative letting you know they are visiting or a carer reminding residents about an outing, keeping up to date with events is key to staying in contact. The Link-ages diary allows contacts to easily share events and reminders. And it is not only events that are key - reminders for medication and appointments are vital to staying healthy and Link-ages can help. The reminder system can be tailored to a users requirements and all diary entries are displayed in an accessible format.

Video Calling

For many, video calling is a regular part of life. But many video calling systems are not easy to use for inexperienced users. Link-ages strives to change that with intuitive, simple, and private video calling, that can bring you are your family together, even when you can't be there in person.

Photo Sharing and Archiving

Whether its that picture of a grandchild on their first day at school or the digitised copies of pictures from youth, having great memories to look back on is a wonderful and stimulating activity. Link-ages makes it easy for families to share and save their photos. Photos can be an excellent way to spark conversation for residents, carers and family members, which can be particularly helpful for those who may be struggling with cognitive decline.

Creating Digital Storybooks

Using the photo gallery feature to create a digital storybook is a great way to ease a loved one's transition into care. Examples of photos to make a great storybook might include friends and family, past occasions and holidays, hobbies and favourite sports teams. It can act as a starting point for conversations with care staff and as a valuable aid to help settle in to a new environment.

Remote Assistance

One of the barriers to older and vulnerable people often encounter using digital communication is a lack of confidence or experience using technology. Link-ages allows a nominated family member to assist the Hub user remotely so there is always help on hand, even if the family member does not live near to the Hub user.

Designed for Privacy

Link-ages works by creating a private network for your family to communicate with each other. Unlike traditional social media, it is only possible to join this 'bubble' by invitation, and anyone joining must be approved by the Hub user. This two-way approval system means that no one outside of the bubble can contact the Hub user and everyone is kept safe from unsolicited contact.
Designed for Privacy

Online Safety

It is highly important that all users are kept safe while using technology such as digital communication. And this is especially true when the user are inexperienced or vulnerable. This is why Link-ages has been designed to keep all users in their own secure 'bubble'. The Link-ages platform only allows contact between authenticated users and there are ads or no external links to take users out of the app into the wider internet.
Online Safety

Designed for Everyone

Link-ages was created with input from older and inexperienced users of technology to help us understand their specific needs. The interface is designed to be as accessible as possible. There is no clutter or distractions and the buttons with large, clear and have high contrast text. Navigating the platform is kept simple with logical options and the minimum number of screens.
Designed for Everyone
