App for families
Mobile Family Updates
Mobile Family Updates has introduced a software and app package designed to communicate with family members of long-term care residents.
The creator, frustrated with his experience with receiving information about his mother-in-law when she was in a community, developed software that allows a facility to broadcast updates to specific residents. Each family member receives a secure update through an app on their Apple or Android device.
The employee can click on a resident's name and type or speak an update about the condition or status.
The app is free to family members; the software for facilities is $49.95 per month per care facility.
