CareFor and Ulysses (UDMS) were acquired by CareLineLive in 2023

The acquisition has helped create one of the strongest all-in-one home care management platforms in Europe with a formidable portfolio of product solutions for local authorities looking to tender their home care, reablement and supported living/building-based services.

In May 2024 we announced that we would be ceasing support for Ulysses/Newcare. CareFor remains a key part of the CareLineLive product suite and will continue to receive our full support. We are excited about it’s future and have invested a significant amount of time and resources into enhancing it’s functionality – testament to our long-term vision for the product which will continue to see new features and improvements in the coming months.

Ulysses/Newcare customers have been offered full support for a free migration to CareLineLive to benefit from it’s enhanced features and capabilities.
