Graceworks at Home Adopts CareMonster

Graceworks at Home Adopts CareMonster

Dayton, Ohio – AuguLogo 2st 22, 2014

Graceworks at Home, sponsored by Graceworks Lutheran Services, is proud to adopt CareMonster, a mobile app aimed at helping families support their loved one receiving medical care. The app is free in the Apple iTunes and Google Playstore. Users simply download the CareMonster app and use provider code 528488. While this provider code is unique to Graceworks at Home, you don’t actually have to be a Graceworks at Home client to use this number.

The simple to use app allows families to coordinate care, visits, and communications with their loved ones facing changing health conditions. The calendar function allows for a visit report so everyone can see who is visiting and when. This helps families avoid overlapping visits. Emoticons allow family members to quickly and easily report on a loved one’s mood and immediate reporting helps avoid “the telephone game” by accurately sharing up-to-date patient information. Each update takes around just 10 seconds to complete.

“Creating an easier way for families to communicate is important to all of us at Graceworks,” says Bonnie Smith, Administrator for Graceworks at Home. “If our families are able to use the app to better manage a family member’s care, then adopting this is app is a major win for us. This app allows Graceworks to explore new technology when it comes to caregiving.”

Graceworks at Home is a Medicare-certified provider. For more information about Graceworks at Home, visit www.graceworksathome.org or call 937-436-7700 to arrange for a homecare assessment.
