Navigating Life

The Navigating Life app is great at keeping people connected whether it’s with pictures, comments, or even scheduling updates. It is more private than other social media sources like Facebook, but it still has many of the features you know and have become accustomed too with your favorite social media’s. There are also features that make recording data on a specific person or subject much easier and more organized. It is a great tool to use especially in the human service field.

Real time communication

I love using Navigating Life because it allows me to communicate with parents and other stakeholders in real time. At any given time of day a member can check in and see what the person they support is doing. Parents can comment and even give suggestions while we are working and active in the community. The people I support love it when they see a parent comment.

Great app!!

I use this app everyday and it is wonderful!! Great way to share pictures and information about what our group is doing throughout the day. Very easy to use and navigate. It’s great that family and loved ones can leave likes and comments and see what our guys are doing and it’s also very user friendly.
