If you are an Alzheimer’s caregiver, you may be looking for a new way to organize and share health information. If so, you may be interested in a free online tool that’s designed specifically for caregivers. The website is Willow, and it can help provide continuity of care for people with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and their caregivers, friends, and family members.
After you sign up for a free account by CLICKING HERE you will be able to upload medical records or other documents that family members (and other members of the care team) need to have access to. The site allows you to upload recent photos, treatment plans, doctor’s notes, prescriptions, and any other important document you need to share.
The Willow website helps to keep everyone organized via an online information sharing forum. Each and every member of your care team can have access to a schedule in real time! This helps with assigning caregiving tasks while keeping information all in one place. The information is accessible to everyone via a computer or smartphone. As tasks are being performed, you can add notes and details the minute new information (such as s new doctor appointment) becomes available. When tasks are completed they can be checked off so each member of the care team knows they are done.
Keep the Care Team Informed
You can access the Willow website via a phone, tablet or computer to access messages and chat with everyone who cares for your loved one with Alzheimer’s disease. When others post messages or load new documents you can set up an alert so each member of the care team is notified.
Willow is just one example of the many great online resources available to help with Alzheimer’s disease caregiving. For a list of other resources and links to access Alzheimer’s disease information, such as online chat, support groups, community resources, educational workshops, and a free course about Alzheimer’s caregiving, as well as Alzheimer’s prevention and treatment, visit the AlzU.org resources page by CLICKING HERE.
