The Challenge and the CareWise™ App Opportunity

CareWise™ has some significant solutions for the growing caregiver crisis in America. Let’s work together to put these solutions into the hands of those who need them most.

CareWise™ Solutions belong in the hands of:

Proud aging or People with Disablities

Employed family members who volunteer their caregiving efforts to loved ones

Employers that are losing productivity through extra sick time off, distracted workers and leaves of absence.

Proud Aging or People with Disabilities

The Care Companion App allows the opportunity to develop additional independence through direct access to resources.

Family members who previously required assistance for normal activities of daily living access more options, create patterns for care and remain as independent as possible for as long as possible.

Employed Family Members Who Volunteer their Caregiving Efforts to Loved Ones

The Care Companion App reduces windshield time, manages care coordination, and supports customized applications for Employee-Caregivers.

For example, most Employee-Caregivers take at least a half-day off work to accompany their aging or disabled family member for each appointment. Sometimes, this may still be necessary. But caregivers tell us that it is frustrating to take most of the day off only to find an appointment was only a quick 10 minutes. All the rest of the time was wasted driving and waiting in the waiting room.

For example, most Employee-Caregivers take at least a half-day off work to accompany their aging or disabled family member for each appointment. Sometimes, this may still be necessary. But caregivers tell us that it is frustrating to take most of the day off only to find an appointment was only a quick 10 minutes. All the rest of the time was wasted driving and waiting in the waiting room.

Many caregivers are thrilled to arrange “3-way communications” with the expert, their family member, and themselves. What was a day off work can now be accomplished during a 15-minute break!

Although the Care Companion App is NOT a medical App, it does support communications, care coordination and scheduling.

This is just a small example. The Care Companion App offers more revolutionary functions to support Employee-Caregivers as they learn to care ABOUT family members without providing all of the care needed FOR them.

Employers that are Losing Productivity

Extra sick time off, distracted workers and leaves of absence are the norms for employee-caregivers.

Right now, only 30% of the workforce is faced with choosing between their jobs and caregiving responsibilities. This number is rising.

Based on the 10,000 Boomers having their 65th birthday every day in America, estimates suggest that more than 70% of our workforce will be caregivers in just a few years.

Yes, 3 out of every 4 US workers. 3 out of 4 of the employees at your company could need “the day off for a family issue” almost every day.

How do businesses get profitable results with only 1 in 4 staff members on the job?

Employers need ways to keep these valuable people working! And this is the core of the Care Companion App.

About the Carewise™ App

We know the issues employees who care cope with every day. We know their employers have started to get on board to support Employee-Caregivers because of the impact on the bottom line. We are here to keep people working, with less stress and more flexible options.

Care Companion is a simple, inexpensive, paired Smartphone and web-based App that anyone with a smartphone or computer can use. It is usually purchased by the employer and made available as a CareWise™ employee benefit, but individual caregivers are also able to purchase the app for their family’s use.

Each family member gains more independence and caregivers can oversee everything by sharing with the companion app device.

Caregivers who hold down jobs feel continually torn, guilty and overworked. The Care Companion App for Smartphones and browsers combines over a dozen supportive technologies to help Employee-Caregivers be both better employees and better caregivers.

  • Care Coordination
  • Medicine Management
  • Healthcare Oversight
  • Employee Benefits Access
  • Food, Meals, Transportation, and Companionship
  • Connects Caregivers to Loved Ones who Require Care
  • Employee to Employer Communications for Remote Work

The next step is to build the model Companion App and test the top solutions. So, this simple, inexpensive Smartphone and browser App is now being presold to employers for their caregiving staff and to individual caregivers their family’s use.

Who is CareWise™ Solutions?

We listen and innovate. Caregiving is generally perceived as a healthcare topic that revolves around the aging or disabled individual. So far, even experts don’t seem to understand the Employee-Caregiver aspects. This is uncharted territory that is critical to the future of our nation’s workforce.

We need to hear your solution recommendations so we can build them into our products. Please, contribute your ideas at our Care Companion Open Suggestion Box

Adding a digital, mobile app to the CareWise™ Platform is the next natural step. It’s a mobile-enabled world. It’s time for the Employee-Caregiver conundrum to have an IoT integrating app.

The ideal market placement is for employers to purchase the Care Companion App for their employees to access. This becomes part of their benefits package as a commitment to employee job retention.

A Message from our Founder – Can You Help?

If you have been following the growth of CareWise™ Solutions, you know that we are a small entrepreneurial, female-owned business. That said, you probably understand that funding from established venture capital and foundations is hard to obtain and often non-existent.

My professional experience is global telecommunications leadership. My personal drama included leaving that executive career due to family caregiving responsibilities. As most do, I experienced the health, financial and relationship losses that usually come with that role.

I decided 8 years ago to “do something.” With my unique expertise in organization and workforce transformation, I realized that this dilemma was a shared employer issue and not merely a family matter. I cashed in a large life insurance policy and started my business with basic operating funds. We cobbled together a global team with expertise to build (and not just talk about) solutions. In fact, each and every man and woman on the CareWise™ team has personal care experience. Such intimate insights!

At pomdev9.com

we proudly offer learning programs, workshops, reports and other resources as reasonably priced solutions. We know you need these resources and action tools. And we understand both company and family budgets are already stretched.

So, the bottom line is that we have more to build FOR YOU with the Care Companion App. And now we need to ask for your donations. We will give you something in return.
