Family Caregivers Find Support and Expert Resources in Caregiving Solution - Caring in Place®
Date:11/25/2013

Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 25, 2013

November is National Family Caregivers Month. For the 45 million family members who care for an aging loved one, it’s nice to be recognized and appreciated. But, that doesn’t make their job any easier.

Families find themselves in unexpected, unplanned role as a caretaker

“Families learning to care for their aging loved ones have it tough,” said Josh Fotheringham, former Apple software designer and current CEO of Caring in Place®. “The majority of family members suddenly become family caregivers overnight because of an unexpected trigger event – a fall, a car accident, an emergency room visit, or simply a physician that says it’s time to get involved. Most families aren’t prepared for what comes next.”

Fotheringham and his fellow co-founder James Jarman were first exposed to the difficulty of family caregiving two years ago while doing research for another healthcare technology project. After literally thousands of hours of research and time spent with caregivers, the co-founders created Caring in Place®. Their free technology solution is designed to help family members learn how to become family caregivers for their aging loved ones.

Active family caregiving reaps measurable benefits for aging loved ones

The impact family members can have on the health of their aging loved ones is not trivial. According to a recent AARP study, there is a direct correlation between the improved health outcomes of seniors and the amount of time family caregivers spend supporting them. Dr. Kevin Knopf, a practicing Hematologist and Oncologist in San Francisco, CA and Clinical Board Chair at Caring in Place® confirmed, “An active family caregiver has the potential to measurably improve the health conditions of their aging family members. A little bit of practical knowledge coupled with simple, clinical guidance can go a long way towards improved health outcom
