It’s no secret that the UK has an ageing population: according to a report from the ONS (Office for National Statistics), the population aged 65 and over has grown by 47% since mid-1974, and the number of people aged 75 and over has increased by 89%, to make up 8% of the population.

The cognitive skills and limitations of each individual will be different as they age, but one thing is certain: everyday tasks get more difficult the older they get.

Many will struggle with their daily household activities: from washing, ironing and cleaning, to shopping and preparing food, either struggling or relying on family and friends to help.

Ageing people and their families face challenges on a day-to-day basis, but support is available. Some companies are leveraging technology to provide services that can reach those in need, whether they live alone or have support from those around them. These services can help the elderly to live easier, safer, and less complicated lives, allowing them to maximise their independence.

This is where Laundrapp comes in.

Laundrapp is an app that’s available on desktop, smartphone, or tablet. The Laundrapp service aims to remove the major physical difficulties someone might face when getting their washing done. They provide a reliable and convenient, high quality, on-demand service.

This means that your loved one isn’t straining themselves unnecessarily, and you’re not spending your time helping them with the laundry whenever you visit.
