Placing and keeping a loved one in long-term care is nationally recognized as one of the most difficult circumstances families face because we are giving up the care of someone we love (parent, grandparent, sibling, child) to strangers. The only way we have to stay informed about their well-being is to either call their caregivers (and hope we get to talk to someone that knows) or make personal visits. We simply can't do that as often as we'd like - our lives are just too hectic.
To help, we created Connect for Healthcare.
Connect for Healthcare is an inexpensive, easy-to-use, subscription-based web service that uses modern technologies - the Internet, e-mail and text messaging - to create and maintain a new and vital link between families and their loved ones in long-term care. It enables care providers to easily give regular, proactive, specific wellness updates to family members and loved ones no matter where they might be in the world. The family benefits by staying better informed and feeling more connected, their loved ones in long-term care benefit because the better informed and more engaged the family is, the better care they can receive, and the provider benefits by having a simple, one-step method of giving families what they really want.
