CareCrew aims to solve one of health care’s biggest challenges: how to care and support for the aging population. Studies show that when people age, they prefer to age at home or their child’s home. This puts pressure on family members who describe caregiving “is like a second job”.
CareCrew’s seniors care solution (called Caren App) coordinates and communicates the plan of care (care plan). Users can share to-do lists, digitally log updates, and see changes to the care plan that is personalized to the senior's needs and preferences.
