The state, counties, and a growing number of nonprofit service providers are offering services to older adults and caregivers. Given the limitations of the health care system and social services, this kind of informal caregiving (i.e., family, friends or neighbors caring for older adults) is crucial.
With the explosion of programs and services in this arena, so comes the confusion around geographic areas, income requirements, etc. Navigating the system takes away valuable time from actually doing the job of caregiving!
What would it take to create a website/app that charts these various services/programs/resources --- after someone enters in their profile information and/or that of their care recipient, they can immediately understand what is available to them -- from meal delivery services for the older adult to caregiver coaching.
Perhaps an organization that already has a platform for web-based tools that help caregivers could then host/integrate it into their offerings. Basically a better, web-based version of Senior LinkAge line that is branded for more than just seniors.
