Another week, more caregiving app vendors

In a non-travel week, I have more time to speak to vendors, both pre-launch and launched.  Here are three launched to add to the list of tech vendors to support caregiving (or 'circle of care' as it is sometimes described). None require any specialized equipment or device in the home. And no doubt each would welcome your contacting them to learn more about their offerings:

Generations Unite (generationsunite.com): A spin-off of St. Louis, Missouri - based Cornerstone Solutions Group, provider of home care agency solutions, Generations Unite was launched to provide a portal for families, caregivers, and care providers to collaborate as a "community" to provide care for family members in need of care.' The portal can be branded by home care agencies and integrate into their back office systems, according to Alan Loveder, VP of Business Development. Cornerstone Solutions Group works with several of the leading home care agencies.

eCare Diary (eCarediary.com): According to New York based founders Susan Baida and John Mills, eCareDiary is a 'website to provide caregivers and seniors all the tools, resources, and community support they need to manage care, including online sharable appointment/medication management, facilities search engine, database of legal documents by state, videos.

FineThanx (Finethanx.com): According to founder and chief technologist Peter Scharff, FineThanx is a telephone-based 'automated wellness call' service that requires no equipment or setup, uses pre-recorded messages transmitted to two phones at once (for example, home and mobile). If the call recipient answers, they are instructed to press 1 if all is okay.  Pressing 2 is a request for assistance, and no response initiates a cycle of repeated calls at intervals, notifying a pre-designated responder or set of responders.
