Every Caregiver’s Ultimate Helper: Our Online SupportPlanner
When it comes to taking care of a friend or a loved one who’s ill or on the mend, you’d do anything. But unfortunately, you can’t do everything.
We know. That’s why we have a whole team of keen, innovative minds creating and perfecting tools to make your life easier so you can provide the best possible care without missing a beat.
Everybody Wants to Help
It’s human nature. And almost everyone who has a CaringBridge Site is connected to a significant “caring community” – friends and family who care a great deal about their well-being.
Most of them are ready and willing to offer their support and assistance; they just don’t always know how they can help. But when you have a SupportPlanner, they will.
Our SupportPlanner helps caregivers coordinate and share tasks with anyone who wants to help, any time.
- It’s an all-inclusive scheduling tool – the “To-Do” list for anyone’s health journey.
- Easy to use, and easy for anyone to sign up and pitch in.
- You can also assign specific tasks to specific people.
Every Task, Every Day
You can set up a SupportPlanner in minutes. Add one-time or regularly-recurring tasks. Urge your caring community to check in and sign up for things you need done:
- Make a meal.
- Walk the dog.
- Help with childcare.
- Provide a ride.
- Pick up prescriptions.
- Shop for groceries.
- Just about anything.
“It’s all there, with a time and place for each task, and a space for anyone who wants to sign up,” says Eric Margolis, a CaringBridge Systems Analyst who helped to develop our SupportPlanner. “You can even add special instructions and details like how many people to feed, who might have a food allergy, where to deliver the meal and more.”
