How will your agency meet this challenge? What plans do you have in place to expand your business and thrive among the competition? Let’s take a look at three ways ClearCare’s homecare system and homecare software can help you manage your time and resources as you expand.
1. Offering innovative technology helps you satisfy more clients. According to a study conducted by the Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST), Baby Boomers are willing to spend up to $100 each month on technology to ensure healthier living and independence as they age. In a series of focus groups, CAST reported most participants would be willing to pay at least $50 each month for electronic monitoring technologies to enable their aging parents or themselves to live independently. Such insight should serve as a wake-up call for home care agencies who are not yet offering these types of services. ClearCare’s homecare system and homecare software is not only intuitive and easy to use, it is affordable as well.
