The Carefolio platform lessens the complexity and stress that develop as families assume caregiving roles at different times and in different ways during a loved one’s dementia journey.
Carefolio achieves this in two ways.
- Carefolio helps families gain peace of mind by making medical, legal, and logistical information easily accessible and shareable to facilitate care delivery and coordination.
- Carefolio addresses the informational gaps related to available resources for caregivers. Whether it is news on the latest dementia research and clinical trials, health and wellness information, professional care assistance at home, or supportive community outreach, Carefolio provides resources tailored to the interests and needs of family caregivers and their loved ones.
The idea for Carefolio emerged from a shared pain of caregiver overwhelm experienced by both co-founders’ families. We knew we were not alone and conducted interviews with family caregivers, health care providers, aging life care professionals, geriatric care managers, and seniors to learn more about their pain points and needs. This discovery process led to the development of the Carefolio MVP and Beta product. To learn more and receive an invite to the Beta, visit www.ehtcares.com
There is a widening gap between the growing number of people needing care assistance and the far smaller number of family caregivers available to help. With nearly 50% of all family caregivers less than 50 years old and sandwiched between providing care for children as well as older relatives, the need for solutions to curb caregiving stress and burden becomes more essential.
