Step 1: Set your goal

Your first recommended action is to set your goal. The goal options are broad and encompass many common challenges faced by family caregivers. Choosing your goal will trigger a couple brief assessments as your next actions. These assessments will help us understand your current situation and how we can best help you.

Step 2: Complete the initial assessment

Answering these questions should take you no more than 5-10 minutes, and will give us the information required to give you customized advice.

Step 3: Complete your daily recommended actions

After completing the initial assessment, we will send you 2-3 daily actions that we recommend. These may be expert-written articles or suggested local professionals. You are always welcome to skip actions you don't think are relevant or complete more than 3 in a single day!

Step 4: Refocus your current goal

After completing all the suggested actions for the goal you initially selected, you can choose a different goal to continue learning and accessing helpful services. Even if you don't have any other serious needs at the moment, you can choose goals to plan ahead! That way, you'll always be prepared if a new issue arises.

Other things to keep in mind...

First, make sure you click through the tabs on the left of your screen such as medications, documents, and members. Members is where you invite via phone number or email any friends or family that help you provide care. You can choose the access level of each member you invite and keep them informed through the app. Next, check out CaringWire's many other capabilities to help you. These include Search and Forum.
