Providing care for an aging loved one in today’s world can be nothing short of a challenge. In the midst of fast-paced lives filled with careers and child care, members of the Sandwich Generation – that is those caring for their own children and adult parents – are often faced with facilitating communication around their parents care. While the task may seem manageable, keeping doctors, in-home caregivers, and other loved ones in the loop can be a near impossibility, especially when there is a sudden change in a senior’s condition.
Homecare Systems Offer a Communication Solution
Making phone calls takes time. Requesting records be faxed takes time. Picking up a copy of paper care logs from a homecare provider’s office takes time. And typically, this is all time that over-worked family caregivers simply don’t have. By utilizing a homecare agency that uses a homecare software or homecare system, like ClearCare, to manage care, family caregivers can create a partnership in helping bridge the communication gap between members of a senior’s care team – and save themselves a considerable amount of time in coordinating communications.
Here’s how: With the power of the best homecare software and homecare systems on the market, ClearCare allows agency administrators to work with the families of their private duty clients to grant access to a client’s care records all within a simple log-in to the agency’s homecare software. Log-ins for client access can be given to multiple family members, doctors, care managers and more. And all of the care log information within the homecare system, from clock-in times to recorded voice comments on a client’s condition can be accessed in one place, allowing all members of a care team to have quick, real-time access to a senior’s daily conditions when care is provided by an elder care agency using ClearCare’s homecare software and homecare systems.
Managing a loved one’s care can be a difficult time, both emotionally and physically. However, hiring the assistance of a homecare agency who utilizes a powerful homecare software or homecare system such as ClearCare will not only give you a helping hand, but also equip you with a powerful tool to manage information on a loved one’s condition.
