The Coronavirus epidemic is disrupting everyone’s lives in ways we couldn’t have imagined just a few months ago. Who knows how long the current restrictions will last or when life will return to something like normal for most of the population.
Throughout all of this, people will still need care services. It could even be that more people need care in their own homes.
Domiciliary care providers are an essential support service even in normal times. In the current situation we need them more than ever. As an organisation working exclusively with care services we are all too aware of the incredibly valuable work you do.
How Will Care Services Cope?
A service already short of care staff and resources won’t find it easy to cope. Even more so when care staff who exhibit early symptoms of the virus will, themselves, have to self-isolate.
So the team at CareFor has been talking about what we can do to make life a bit easier for care providers and their teams. As our small contribution we are offering all care providers a free single-user licence of CareFor, including our unique CAREBooster functionality, for twelve months.
The application is simple to use and automatically optimises care runs. Care staff then spend the absolute minimum amount of time travelling between appointments. This makes their work less stressful and leaves them more time to care for service users.
In one local authority team of fewer than 30 carers, CAREBooster saved the time equivalent of four care staff. That level of added productivity could make a huge difference over the coming months.
Taking advantage of the offer is easy. Simply get started with your free trial below.
