Family Engagement - Caregiving Re-Imagined

  1. 1. Family Engagement Caregiving Re-Imagined Bevi Kothare
  2. 2. Understanding the Numbers • Aging Population • Every day 10,000 people turn 65; there are 48M people over 65 today and that is expected to grow to 88M in the next 30 years • The dependency ratio (people over 65 to those 18-65) is already 60 out of 100; in 30 years it will be 76 out of 100 • Who cares for these people? • >45M informal, unpaid caregivers in the US (more than 20 hours per week) • ~4.4M paid ‘direct care’ workers (home care, nursing homes, long- term care, hospice, assisted living). • Something needs to change – but what? • One option is to try to increase the direct care workforce but many constraints – money, employees, wages, etc. • Empower informal caregivers to increase efficiency through increased collaboration with social and community resources and applying emerging technologies 2
  3. 3. What are the options? 3-U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Statistics
  4. 4. Formal Care • According to PHI (the nation’s leading authority on the direct-care workforce), we will need to fill more than 630,000 home-care jobs over the next decade • The traditional pool of workers — women between age 25 and 64 — is expected to grow by only 1.9 million. 4
  5. 5. Who is a Caregiver? 5
  6. 6. 6 "There are only four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.” - Rosalynn Carter Former First Lady
  7. 7. The Problem: Families Don’t Know What To Do • People become ‘caregivers’ either gradually without realizing it or dramatically following a crisis • They are on their own to figure out what to do, how to do it and what help might be available • Supporting day to day activities (ADLs and IADLs), coordinating care activities, managing legal/financial/professional areas and maintaining a longitudinal care plan can be overwhelming • There are many applications for patients and doctors, but ignore the caregiver – the most under appreciated but hardest working group. 7
  8. 8. What We Do • Transforming the way people provide care and support to their aging, disabled or chronically ill loved ones • We deliver an intelligent, customized, interactive assistant that brings together a complete personal support network 8
