It’s in our DNA to care. Now, with the power of innovative technology, anyone can provide better care for a loved one; literally in the palm of your hand. genusConnect™ is an app that brings a collection of the best care resources together in a single open platform. Shared with your circle of caregivers, genusConnect™ allows you to communicate, schedule, coordinate, organize, monitor and learn in order to better care for a loved one.
Connecting together, caring better.
While we are more alike than we are different, every caregiver brings their own set of individual strengths. Leverage those unique strengths with genusConnect™ and you’ll have peace of mind in knowing those you care about are safe. You will be secure in knowing that as a connected circle of caregivers you are working together and easing the burden of isolation that often comes with caregiving.
genusConnect™’s open platform for connected care provides access to the resources caregivers need.
genusConnect™’s modular design allows you to select the features you need today and add features as your needs change.
Easily manage what is shared
Not everyone needs, or wants, to see everything. You decide who can view or update medical, legal and financial information. genusConnect™ allows caregivers to focus on the area of care that is best for them and their loved one.
Stay connected, at-a-glance
Family members will know: “How’s mom?”, “Who visited or called last?” and “Is there anything Mom needs?” Your calls and visits are automatically logged. Furthermore, you can view and respond to shared calendar events and tasks. Now you’ll know how your loved one is doing and when/how you can contribute best.
The impacts of using genusConnect™ are:
- Better quality of life for your loved one
- Lower family/caregiver stress
- Reduced medical costs*
Face the future, together.
In our hearts, we all want to care for our loved ones. One of the most powerful components of genusConnect™ is that it empowers caregivers to work together in a positive, meaningful way. genusConnect™ provides articles and resources that help families care better, understand more clearly, and come together at a time when pressures can pull them apart. Each aspect of genusConnect™ is designed to empower each of us to be the best givers of care that we can be. When we connect together, we care better.
* Studies show that the cost of care is 21% lower for engaged families. http://healthaffairs.org/healthpolicybriefs/brief_pdfs/healthpolicybrief_86.pdf
Centered around the recipient’s Four-Needs-of-Care™
genusConnect™ addresses the Four-Needs-of-Care™:
Emotional Well-Being: How is Mom feeling today? Who talked to her last?
Medical Well-Being: What did the doctor say? Is Dad taking his medicine?
Physical Safety: What’s the temperature at Mom’s home? Did she leave the stove on?
Financial Well-Being: Who has Dad’s medical power of attorney? Is he paying his bills on-time?
Supports the needs of caregivers
genusConnect™ addresses the primary concerns of families and caregivers:
Peace of Mind: Are Mom’s Four-Needs-of-Care™ being met?
Quality of Life: How can I better manage my work, family and caregiving responsibilities?
Often, when we are cast into the role of caregiver, it is unexpected. genusConnect helps you through the process in a positive and meaningful way.
