Are you caring for a family member while also working? If so, trying to manage your family member’s care might feel pretty overwhelming.
Here’s an opportunity to advance research in caregiving while also benefiting from an online care management tool that can help you stay organized.
Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging is looking for volunteers to participate in a study to evaluate CareGeneral, a new online system designed to help working family caregivers coordinate a loved one’s care in a secure online space. Caregivers can add others involved in the person’s care to their online care team.
This is a fantastic opportunity to help Mather LifeWays perfect this important tool while also receiving invaluable benefits for your family. Volunteers will receive free lifetime access to CareGeneral and up to $125 in gift cards.
To participate, you must be caring for someone age 50 or older. There must be at least one additional person helping your loved one (so you can create a care team in CareGeneral), and this person must be willing to participate in the study too. You and your care team member(s) each must have a valid email address and access to an Internet-ready device (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.).
If you are a family caregiver who is also holding down a job, that’s a lot to juggle. Please consider taking advantage of this opportunity. You’ll be helping a great organization and helping yourself to boot.
Note: I did not receive any direct requests or compensation of any kind to promote this study. I simply found out about it and wanted to pass along the information to you!
