There are many resources available to the families of aging and senior parents. Some come in the form of individuals, met through friends or discovered from word of mouth; others in the form of trusted agencies you have known for ages, or visited in your trek to find the right solution for your loved one; and finally, there is CareFamily.
An online registry of caregivers across the country, CareFamily connects clients (that would be you) with ideal caregivers based on profiling, needs assessments and more. Clients are given access to a variety of online tools that will help well beyond the interviewing process – the online tools also give you a way to monitor the care provided, review invoices and track payments, as well as ensure the medical information the doctor needs is readily available at your finger tips.
Once you have set up a CareFamily profile, you can review caregivers through a set of parameters, set up interviews, propose fees and rates, offer jobs, track the quality of service you receive and more. In addition, CareFamily provides a host of resources to help you make informed decisions. Their online resources include a personal care coach, remote care management, online monitoring and an easy online method to track and transmit data about the elderly loved on in your care.
This is all part of CareFamily’s commitment to providing hassle-free caregiving.
Since CareFamily isn’t an agency, they are may be able to connect you to caregivers at a lower rate. Visit their website for more details on rates and fees.
