Solution

It gets easier and easier to numb yourself with daily chores. You need to buy drugs, cook, feed, wash, remember appointments. You juggle with so many things, sometimes you can not remember who you were before that. What did you use to do? You had so much time and you don`t even remember what you did with that. Between all the new things you need to get accustomed with, you need to organize. You need to not forget who you are, you need to keep some of your social life. And you do not need to mix things up. It is really ugly to have to remember everything and place post its everywhere. You need a calendar. A personal and a caretaker calendar. You need a companion who understands perfectly what you do, when you need to do it and what every chore means. You need a calendar that will know taking pills only takes you 10 minutes, washing gets up untill an hours, doctor apointments are specially designed to book you for the afternoon.

You will have caretaker chores and personal tasks. - Pills, appointments, bath, food, groceries, farmacy - all that you need to do as a caretaker - Log in symptoms or anything else you need to remember from daily basis. - And based on some simple questions you will answer at the beginning, the app will suggest days and times when you should meet up with your best friend or get dinner with your spouse. It will juggle with you trough everything that is going on.

Describe a caregiver situation that you were/are involved in.

My grandfather had Alzeimers. In a year he lost himself. My uncle took care of him for awhile along with my grandmother. She lost her sight and had diabetes. It was hard and he easily lost track of days, priorities, medication. He wouldnt let me take charge because he said i wouldnt know everything that needed to be done. If there were such an app, I think other member of the family would have been able to pitch in and help more.

Explain the caregiver problem that resulted for you and/or other caregiver(s).

He got to the burnout point. He lost his patience and all his time. He forgot to call friends for birthdays, he let go his social life. It was very hard for him to get back on track afterwards.

Describe your caregiver solution that would provide assistance or relief to the problem of the caregiver.

How would this app kelp the caretaker take care of himself? First he wouldn`t have to remember everything. He would log in pills, treatment, doctor appointments, prescriptions, baths, food. It would have reminders and alerts and categories. Second, based on some questions asked upon installation, the app would remind the caretaker to get coffe with a friend or go out to dinner based on an algorithm that would let him know when there would be time for this things.
