Overview

CareStory provides each resident with a profile displayed as a beautiful quick fact page, with care instruction videos, care preferences, personalized music, a life history video from the family, an overview of their life with some key highlights as well as video messages from family members or caregivers. Caregivers use the app to scan a secure QR code. Upon scanning, the resident’s profile displays. The CareStory app allows family members to share background information about the resident. Staff can input the residents’ unique care preferences. The app is dynamic; staff and family members work together to update the profile according to the changing care preferences. Like a care plan, but live and asynchronous. These changes are subsequently highlighted for all caregivers who have interacted with that specific resident.
