CareMonkey is an emergency health and safety solution used by families and organisations with a duty of care.
CareMonkey users can create care profiles containing a person’s emergency contacts, health and safety alerts, allergy details, medications, asthma plan, immunisations, blood type, organ donor details, health and ambulance insurance details and much more.
Care profiles can be shared with family, friends, or any organisation with a duty of care for their families, even when they are offline.
Organisations provide authorised carers (e.g. teacher, coaches, supervisors, etc) instant access to care profiles on mobile devices in an emergency...so they know who to call, what to do, or what to tell an ambulance paramedic.

Ratings and Reviews
I want to like it
• There are no push notifications so I never know if there’s anything new. Eg. Excursion (field trip) permission.
• Relies in email to notify you of new information/requests from the school. So what’s the point of an app?
• Emails go to the primary parent (1st parent to sign up). In my case I signed up second so I don’t even get the email notifications.
• Help centre is incapable of helping. They blamed the school. I did everything they suggested. Walked the school through it to make sure they did their part correctly. Still not receiving emails.
• Poorly designed user interface: it’s not really an app. It’s a more like a browser that houses a badly designed mobile website. So it doesn’t take advantage of any app based features like push notifications.
A frustrating app. Poor performance on IOS. Doesn’t work properly. Printing attachments doesn’t work, prints everything small. Clicking on links or logos will take to to a screen that there is no escape from and the only way to continue using the app is to restart phone. No push notifications. I could go on and on.
So frustrating that organisations are choosing this. There are far better options available.
Hard to navigate
This a very clunky app eg. Whenever we ‘respond’ to something to acknowledge that we have read it, the app freezes and doesn’t automatically take you back to the menu.
That’s just one on the clunky features.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
