Texting helped me coordinate what seniors need and what is observed by caregivers

Thanks to smart phone, I use it to train caregivers. As soon as they hear coughing at night, they texted me about it and I brought the cough syrup med in the morning. Texting is the fastest way to coordinate care among many caregivers since at times there are at least 4 caregivers for a senior client being cared for 24 hours, 7 days a week.

Care coordination is faster with texting using smart phones. We can play a video on how tos for in home care, cooking and other information.

Sometimes, we show YouTube funny videos of animals to our seniors who love animals.
