helping each other

Recovering from surgery or injury?

Our free app makes it easy to coordinate the help needed.


Organise help from family and friends to make recovery easier

Recovery after surgery or injury can be slow and challenging. Simple tasks can be difficult or even impossible.

Support from family and friends can play an important role in recovery – but it is not always easy to ask for the help you really need.

Gather My Crew is here to make coordinating this help easier.

Set up a ‘support crew’ and coordinate family and friends to help out with meals, laundry, grocery pickup or social visits.

Or create an account for someone you care about today.


The right help at the right time makes all the difference

Getting started

Feeling overwhelmed is a common reaction to hardship. But you don’t have to do it alone. You can join the 80% of users who enlist the help of a family member or close friend to be their App Captain.

Gather your Crew

Invite people to join your Crew. Think of friends, family and anyone who’s offered to help. Choose people from your phone contacts to send an SMS invite.

Identify help opportunities

When you’re overwhelmed, it’s often hard to suggest ways others can help. Our handy 1 minute questionnaire can help. We’ll use your answers to build a list of common help requests, outlined in your Help List.

Create tasks

To ask for help, create a task. Easily choose a commonly requested task from your Help List. Or write your own.

Shared calendar

The description, date and time of your tasks will be added to the shared calendar and published task list.

In-app messaging

In-app messaging

You can use in-app messages to send updates, upload photos and share materials for specific tasks, such as shopping lists or recipes.

“Wednesday is my day off. So I’d be more than happy to walk the dog.”

“I’ll take Anna’s kids with mine to school. Easy since they’re so close by”

Advice from an Orthopaedic Surgeon

To assist with surgery recovery at home, I encourage my patients to make preparations prior to going into hospital.

It is incredibly important to arrange family and friends to assist with everyday tasks such as cooking, shopping and laundry.

When this is done well, patients are able to concentrate on their recovery rather than worrying about things they can’t do or attempting to do things they shouldn’t do.

Gather My Crew’s app makes it easier to ask for and manage the help required in a dynamic way that can be adapted as the needs change during the recovery process.

Can I share the admin duties?
