Care Diary: A One-Stop Solution to Manage Complex Caregiving

By Meghana Giridhar
August 25

According to “Caregiving in the US 2015”, a joint research report between the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP, the typical higher-hour caregiver, who provides unpaid care for at least 21 hours a week, has been caregiving for an average of 5-1/2 years. Family caregivers also typically have a heavy load of responsibilities and juggle multiple roles when it comes to family and work. They are considered the silent backbone of healthcare in our country. On a daily basis, the caregiving process involves complex tasks such as: •    Researching and understanding conditions affecting a loved one •    Managing doctor’s appointments •    Managing medications •    Finding assistance and services •    Handling finances     •    Shopping for specialized equipment that may be required by the caree •    Coordinating legalities •    Keeping other family members abreast of the situation •    Getting the right kind of support eCareDiary, a web community created based on the founders experiences as caregivers for their parents, is here to help with its unique solution called the Care Diary.
