Is there any technology that will help me organize all the things I need to do for my loved one?

En español | Technology that helps with monitoring, safety and communications can help people stay in their homes longer and lighten the load for caregivers. A recent survey by AARP finds caregivers are increasingly aware of devices, such as fall sensors, gadgets that passively monitor whether a loved one is up and moving around, and automatic pillboxes.

Caregivers are often the keepers of important papers such as health care records and legal documents. Experts suggest the information be gathered and stored in one secure place for easy access. Try apps and websites, such as DropboxEvernote or AboutOne Family Organizer, to store and organize them so they are at your fingertips and easy to share with other family members.
