Caregiving is tough. However, the free Caring Village mobile app can make it easier. Use the Caring Village app to help you easily organize and coordinate caregiving activities, manage medications, store documents, and get help from others. Here are a few of the great benefits of using the Caring Village app to care for your aging loved one.
Get Organized and Keep Everything in One Place
One of the most difficult aspects of being a caregiver is serving as a gatekeeper for so much information. It’s up to you to know your loved one’s daily schedule, care routine, and prescription information. On top of that you have to collect and organize all of their important documents.
Caring Village makes it easier to get and stay organized. The Caring Village app is an easy-to-use “caregiving organizer” allowing users to tackle the day-to-day challenges of caregiving with ease. Access your loved one’s schedule of events, medication lists, legal and medical documents, and care plans all in once place anytime, anywhere.
Get the Help You Need Fast
Do you ever feel like you could do so much more if you only had help? It’s impossible to carry everything on your shoulders all of the time. Caring Village makes it easy to get the help you need. Create a village for your loved one and invite family, friends, neighbors, and care professionals to participate in their care. Get assistance taking your loved one to appointments, running errands, or providing companion care. There is even a feature in the app that allows you to request a volunteer for a scheduled event or a to-do list item, right in the palm of your hand. You might be surprised to see how many people are willing to help.
Ensure Your Loved One is Safe
The app makes it easy to stay engaged and in contact at all times with those watching your loved one by using the wellness journal, instant notifications, and secure messaging. You can also make a daily care plan and upload documents with your safety tips and directions for others to access when filling in for you. That way, even when you’re away at work or running errands, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your loved one is in good hands at all times.
Prepare for the Future
No one knows what the future will bring. However, the Caring Village app can help ensure you’re prepared no matter what comes your way. With built-in preparedness checklists, we guide you through Caregiving 101, Home Preparedness, and Financial, Medical, Legal, and Estate Planning. Find out all the important documents you need and gauge your process in collecting and storing those documents.
Decrease Stress and Worry Less
As a caregiver, it is so easy to feel stressed and overwhelmed managing a million things at once. Caring Village makes it easier to stay organized, keeps things from falling through the cracks, and ensures you’re providing your loved one with the best care possible. It gives you back your time and your sanity.
