50 Technologies ofr Caregivers.jpg
Caregivers often are unpaid relatives or spouses of people who need assistance with activities of daily living and medical tasks. As more Americans choose to age at home, they require caregivers to make their choice possible. In most cases, caregivers organize medications and make sure their loved ones take them on time, assist them with getting dressed, bathing, and using the bathroom, schedule appointments with health care providers, provide transportation to appointments, make meals, and much more. Because caregivers spend the majority of their time caring for someone else, they benefit from tools that make the job more manageable.

That’s why we have rounded up 43 of the most helpful tools and blogs for caregivers. We have included smartphone apps for tracking medication, blogs for reading about how others cope with the demands of being a caregiver,  and technology systems that monitor and track the care recipient and alert the caregiver of emergencies or potential health hazards. Please note, we have listed our top 43 tools for caregivers below in no particular order. Also, we have included a Table of Contents to make it easier for you to jump to the tools that you find most useful.
