Smartphones and tablets have become an important part of our everyday life. As technology continues to advance, new apps are steadily releasing, offering more features than ever before.
The release of new apps involving management, dementia care and ways to check up on elderly loved ones has created easy problem-solving methods for caregivers. Apps can be a great way for a caregiver to connect with a loved one.
In a recent blog post, HealthCentral lists the top apps that caregivers should be using to reduce stress and connect with a loved one, including:
- Coloring apps to stimulate elderly dementia patients
- Apps to track how often your loved one is moving around
- An app that organizes and manages caregiving between multiple caregivers or family members
Utilizing the technology at your fingertips can have a big impact on relieving the everyday stress of caregiving. Trying out new apps and figuring out what works best for you is the first step in creating a more relaxed and connected caregiving experience.
