Caring People Leverages CaringOnDemand Platform to Meet the Rising Demand for Caregivers During the COVID-19 Pandemic
NEW YORK, March 31, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Caring People, a licensed home care agency servicing seniors in NY, NJ, CT, FL and TX, is meeting the increasing demand for caregivers during the COVID-19 pandemic by utilizing a platform that allows multiple providers to engage in a single care delivery system, CaringOnDemand.
Steven East, CEO of Caring People, began developing this platform five years ago as a solution to fill the increasing need to meet seniors' desire to remain at home and avoid institutional placement, the demand for dedicated, committed, and passionate home care givers is at an all-time high. Since its inception, the platform has been dubbed the "Uber for home healthcare" due to its ability to provide access to homecare to patients easily, efficiently, and with the touch of a button.
CaringOnDemand links patients directly to caregivers. Patients have the unique ability to request homecare services on an as-needed basis using the home healthcare solution. The platform is accessible via the CaringOnDemand tablet or phone app and has a simple, easy to use interface. Users request assistance with the onetouch feature, track the caregiver's estimated time of arrival and can see the time spent in the patient's home. Upon completion of the visit, a request for rating and review is sent to the patient.
Due to the limited supply of caregivers available during the spread of the COVID-19 virus the need for CaringOnDemand has significantly increased.
"We are reaching out to every provider who has available staff to register with CaringOnDemand, waiving licensing fees and training costs, as well as a fast track onboarding process to expeditiously leverage the platform to help our seniors," Caring People CEO Steven East said, adding, "If 50 providers in New York City each have two to five available qualified caregivers who can assist during this crisis, we now have an additional 100-500 caregivers who can service anywhere from 500-4,000 seniors a day."
The health of our senior population is at great risk during this time. Not only because they are more susceptible to falling gravely ill due to the virus, but any secondary health needs are just that, secondary. Seniors' already critical home care needs are vitally important to maintain, even in the light of the COVID-19 crisis. CaringOnDemand can help alleviate the pressure to locate and deploy efficient and affordable home health caregivers, keeping seniors healthy and safe.
"During this time of uncertainty, we have a unique opportunity to align with existing caregiver initiatives and add a tremendous value to provider and patient resources. CaringOnDemand can help move towards the goal of excellent and efficient patient care, while being a part of the solution in the COVID-19 crisis," East said.
Annually, as the aging population in the United States increases in number, the demand for senior care services has experienced record demand year after year. Even in optimal conditions, staffing for home health aides can be scarce, especially when it comes to certified nursing assistants. The need for dedicated, committed and passionate homecare providers is at an all-time high.
