Problems most caregivers face:
• Going from patient to patient can take up a lot of time and money, leading to unnecessary stress.
• Constantly moving from patient to patient can make caregiver feel overwhelmed, like fighting against time.
How will CarePool solve these problems? By carepooling with other caregivers, everyone will • Reduce expenses Caregivers will be splitting costs of transportation between them, like a shared taxi. • Forget about stress that comes with driving Driving can be stressful. By carepooling, someone else will be driving and caregivers will be able to enjoy the ride • Socialize with other caregivers Carepool can be a great way for caregivers to socialize and share the load of day’s work. Hardest part can be feeling alone. By carepooling caregivers will be able to talk with people in the same situation they are. With people who understands them. I believe carepool can be the professional community caregivers need. Socializing can also be a great way to find new opportunities and forge business relationships. By carepooling professionals in the same field would be driving to and from work together each day.
How it works: Caregivers will create profiles and add their daily schedules. After that system will automatically pair caregivers with similar schedules/routes. This can include medical personnel in hospitals too, if not enough caregivers live in the same area.
When possible route that would fit all the people is calculated, they are offered list of possible departure and arrival times, expenses etc. Monthly membership can also be an option. Ideally, their transportation expenses should already be paid. If that is not the case, carepooling is the next best thing.
Transportation could be provided by taxi companies, who would provide their prices for said routes. Ideally CarePool would directly provide cars and drivers.
CarePool will offer cheaper, faster, more comfortable and fun option.
