An app that makes it easy to organize your family life.
Organizing your family life is always challenging -- in particular following a separation or divorce! The most difficult thing is to keep on top of things during this period. Children suffer the most from a lack of structures and not knowing when they will see mum or dad again. As a result, managing your family life as best and with as little stress as possible will be essential to ensuring the welfare of your children. An app to assist you in organizing supervision times on a neutral platform can be of great assistance in this instance.
Patchwork Family helps you manage child-related activities simply in a common calendar, talk about child-related topics in the chat function and keep all the information related to your child, such as notes, cards and documents close at hand. This takes the stress out of your patchwork family life and lets you stay on top of things.
Patchwork Family focuses on joint childcare. This is why its calendar is set up in a way that also allows other caregivers to schedule activities with your child, in addition to your own. This saves time and creates a mutually-supportive atmosphere in the patchwork environment.
“The separation of parents is always an unexpected shock for children. Parents are faced with the challenging situation to take the children’s need to stay in close contact with both parties seriously.” Mag. Evelyn Niel-Dolzer / Psychotherapist
You can create a profile for any of your children. You can upload, create and manage all activities, events, caregivers, contacts, notes, cards, passes and documents for each child, helping you to keep on top of things.
You can add as many caregivers per child as you wish and invite them via their email addresses to join Patchwork Family. Caregivers are individuals who will look after your child: you, grandma, aunt, a cousin, the babysitter, etc. It is up to you whether you will grant the caregiver only reading rights or also writing rights.
You can add activities and events in the calendar and define the relevant caregiver who should look after your child. Events and activities can also be created by caregivers. This kind of teamwork is designed to save time, as the organization should run almost automatically. The calendar also shows if no event/activity is planned. This means, you will have enough time to react and your child is always well cared for.
The event overview will show you what your child is doing where and with whom at one glance. You can also add new events/activities from here, in addition to the calendar.
Manage important contacts of your child, such as teachers, doctors or friends and make them available to your patchwork. This will give caregivers access to all important contacts at all times.
NOTES, CARDS & DOCUMENTS
Manage information such as your child’s favorite food, allergy pass, annual zoo ticket and many more. This way, caregivers will always have access to relevant information.
All members of your patchwork have a direct and common communications platform, made especially and exclusively for child-related topics. If the piano lesson was cancelled, for example, you can react quickly and ask who could jump in. Additionally, the chat can be very helpful in emotionally difficult situations – organizational issues can be discussed objectively and with the necessary distance.
We have developed Patchwork Family because we live in patchwork families ourselves. This is why we know about the daily challenges, new environment, and what children require in patchwork situations. The welfare of the children is what is important to us and we hope that our app will benefit your children, too.
