This week on my radio show Dementia Resilience with Jill Lorentz, my guest was Jill Lindgren from eLivelihood. She has co-founded an extraordinary mobile and personal computer application that can help friends and families communicate with each other about everything from a person’s care to doctor appointments, time spent traveling to appointments and back, general care, paying caregivers, and much more! I asked her to explain her product, which has just launched on the market and these are some of the things we talked about!
How do you know this is what people want or need? She received feedback from interviewing over 250 caregivers and families. I asked, “What where their pain points, common complaints from primary caregivers, seniors and extended family?” So what was the #1 issue? Jill Lindgren answered, “Empathy. We solve that by having a non-confrontational way to share contributions, share information and the workload. We take the Senior out of the family politics.”
So I asked Ms. Lindgren to tell me about the system; and how her service helps families get everything together – what’s that look like? Below are the highlights we covered. Listen to the show and learn more!
