Informal Caregivers continue to be the unsung heroes of our health-care system. The amateur caregiver is an essential part of many patients’ journeys, complementing the work of health-care professionals and providing countless hours of dedicated service to their family, friends, and neighbours.
There are many issues, and barriers caregivers face, and CareRelay has figured out how to empower and support them. We help them coordinate care among, family, friends, neighbours, and professionals. Appointments, tasks, reminders, family decision board, and document management everything the caregivers need to distribute their workload, provide peace of mind and reduce stress for everyone while improving communication.
CareRelay crowd-sources the data, uses AI to distribute the workload, and channels services that the family needs for a patient’s improved quality of life at home. When families need outside support, our integration with third-party partners can arrange to have groceries and medical supplies delivered, can order an Uber for doctor’s appointments, or get a referral to our network of professional service providers for life planning or daily support. What a relief for family members who can’t take off time from work.
There are more than eight-million Canadians and sixty-five-million Americans providing care to a family member or friend with a long-term health condition, disability or ageing needs. That is 1/3 of people ages 40 to 60 are caregivers. Sixty percent are also sandwiched juggling the demands of paid work and their own family. They are sandwiched between both and suffer from stress-related ailments. 56% of Caregivers spend 40+ hours of caregiving per week.
