Caregiver Help Radio: Caregiving Meets Technology
Category: BlogOn: April 3, 2013
Do you ever feel like you’re out of the loop regarding the condition of a loved one who’s being cared for by family members or home health care professionals? Do you sometimes wonder if anyone really is paying attention? Join us as Elaine Sanchez of CaregiverHelp.com and ElaineKSanchez.com speaks with Robert Herzog, Founder and CEO of eCaring to discuss how new technologies are changing the way we care for aging loved ones and the elderly at home. Robert created eCaring as a result of the frustration he experienced managing his mother’s care during the last several years of her life. Although there was a steady stream of caregivers coming into her home, Robert felt like it became a “black box” where information was stored but not shared. Discover how his experience motivated him to develop a home health care management and monitoring system that enables everyone involved, regardless of their computer competency or English literacy, to stay informed about the care, conditions, activities and status of home health care patients.
