How Technology Supports Human Caring

How Technology Supports Human Caring

Recently several videos online have shown how robots—both animal and human—can provide substitute care for individuals needing extra help with activities of daily living. While we believe technology definitely has an imminent future in caregiving, we don’t believe it can replace the human components of care.

In our latest video, we introduce our Homewatch CareGivers’ Care+™ technology and how it has been designed to further enrich the lives of clients, caregivers, and home care business owners. Senior care is about people having meaningful connections to the better of all involved.

“It’s definitely going to help from a revenue and marketing standpoint because we are going to have more outcomes to show,” said Wendy Raney, owner of Homewatch CareGivers in Plano and Dallas, Texas. “Data is always powerful.”

For clients, Homewatch CareGivers’ Care+ technology helps caregiving staff create a unique personalized plan of care where they capture clients’ stories and add them to their clients’ profiles as the relationship grows. Knowing everything from favorite foods, hobbies and pet’s names to preferences for when the client likes to bathe allows for a deeper understanding of each individual as a person.

For caregivers, this is a place to quickly and easily record completed daily activities, update schedules, record progress or decline, and more.

For owners, they can manage their business with this online platform 24/7 as they access profitability reports, staff schedules, payroll and more on a consistent basis. Using Homewatch CareGivers’ Care+, franchisees can nurture and expand relationships with caregivers, clients and clients’ families.
