Long Distance Caregivers have a New Tool in Care Groups

Living far away from a loved one who needs help is perhaps one of the most difficult aspects facing long-distance caregivers. Lacking the ability to monitor daily wellbeing and care can cause stress and feelings of guilt. But AGIS CareGroups can give long-distance caregivers a resource to help them watch over their loved one in a free and easy-to-use private website. How does this work?

Register for your own personal care group. Once your group is registered, invite family members, friends, members from your faith community or your loved one’s neighbors to the group. You can set up a message board to discuss issues, family events and even coordinate care:

The community calendar makes planning simple and the easy-to-read message board gives you all the information you need at a glance. Days you need help are displayed in green. Days you are scheduled to help have a little person icon. Days that have all needs met are displayed in blue.

Once the activity is added, an email is sent to everyone in the group asking if they are available. You can even schedule yourself on the calendar and let people know when you are coming to visit. CareGroups comes with AGIS’ proven and trustworthy resources to help you – the caregiver. To start your own 100% free, personalized Family CareGroup please visit: http://www.agis.com/caregroups/
