Silicon Valley Takes on the Challenge of Family Caregiving
Date:7/16/2014

ing family members of upcoming events (from daily tasks to doctor’s appointments), and alerting the caregiver of current or impending crises.

Richard Adler, Distinguished Fellow, Institute for the Future and co-author of the report stressed the importance of continuing to foster caregiving research, saying, “Innovators need to clearly understand the problems that caregivers face in order to develop effective and usable technology solutions.”

Cali Yost, founder of the Flex/Strategy Group and a participant in the April roundtable agrees. “The situation caregivers find themselves in is often chaotic and confusing, especially if they also have a job. This makes it difficult for them to think systematically about what kinds of help or support they need,” she said. “With the right technology and coaching, caregivers can fit their responsibilities together in a way that works best for everyone—their loved one, their family, their boss, and themselves.”

“Employers and healthcare institutions will both benefit from empowered family caregivers,” added Rajiv Mehta, Principal, Bhageera Consulting and co-author of the report, “and are ideally positioned to encourage entrepreneurs to innovate.”

The report is available for download at http://www.caregiving.org. It was made possible thanks to generous support from the California HealthCare Foundation, Kaiser Permanente, the Institute for the Future, and Intel-GE Care Innovations.
