If you are a caregiver you should consider taking advantage of the technology available today to help you in your role. Many caregivers find staying organized, knowing how to handle various situations, and communicating with other people on the caregiving team to be challenging. The top three most useful caregiver apps described below will help with these issues.
CareZone is a fantastic app to help caregivers communicate with each other. One person sets up the app and provides all the important information about the elderly loved one. They then invite friends, family members and other caregivers to join as helpers. All helpers will have access to the task-list, journal and medication tracking. It is also possible to send a voice message to helpers. Using this app will allow all caregivers to be up to date on the status of their loved one.
Facing a situation you don't know how to handle? Elder 411 offers over 500 pieces of advice found in print, audio and video form. For example, if you are considering hiring a home aide you can search on Elder 411 and find what questions to ask so you locate the right professional caregiver for your family situation. Caregivers appreciate having a place to look when they aren't sure how to approach a situation.
If staying organized is a challenge for you seek help from the Unfrazzle app. You can create to-do lists and journals. This app will help you track important details such as the weight of your loved one over time.
Lotsa Helping Hands
This platform allows caregivers to get support when they need it. You can add requests for help to a calendar and members of the Lotsa community can help coordinate the logistics. This app can help your community come together and make sure that no one gets forgotten.
Caregivers Touch lets you store important information such as your contact information, all birth dates, social security numbers, blood types, medical history, military history and insurance information such as policy numbers. The app also has a built-in calendar.
