As the product manager of ADLware I have a lot of fun working with the development team. My main goal and purpose is to provide ideas of how to improve the software functionality and "use-ability." What's also fun about my job is working with all of our clients. Many of the innovations and ideas that improve our software come from our clients. Because ADLware is a cloud based home care software, we can make updates and release them all the time. Gone are the days of downloading anything new, or buying the latest version. With ADLware, you have the latest version.
If you're looking for a software that is fluid and constantly improving, demo our product. We'd love to show you how our home care software will take your agency to heights never before achieved.
HomeCare Blog for Private Duty
I recently sat down with a friend who happens to be a caregiver and asked her about her experience serving others. She was very candid and talked about how much she loves her job. She said that some of her best experiences during the day are working with clients. Some clients are cordial and fun, always wanting to plan the next adventure, while others are relaxed, preferring to stay in the house all day. What's interesting was she worked with several different clients, and each was fun in their own way. One lady expected every minute to be well spent. While the client put on her makeup, my friend was to sweep the kitchen, do the dishes, and make her breakfast. And my friend loved it!
At ADLware we love hearing stories about caregiving and helping seniors. Our homecare software was built to ensure that seniors were taken care of. If you need home care or are looking for caregiving, don't hesitate. Find an agency today. Relationships will be built that will last forever, and that's what we're all about.
Caregiver burnout and caregiver stress are not conducive to a healthy lifestyle. When caregivers are scheduled for hours on end, they can experience a decrease in health and bodily functions. However, if properly scheduled, caregivers can enjoy their job while providing a quality service. Here are some ideas of how to avoid caregiver burnout and caregiver stress:
- Schedule caregivers with periodic breaks. Using ADLware home care software, agencies can see exactly how many hours are being scheduled and when. This helps agencies to alleviate stress, if a large load of work hours is given to one caregiver
- Caregivers should spend time doing activities they enjoy (while off-duty). Too often people get wrapped up in being busy. Being busy is great, but we need time to decompress. Take time to relax.
There are so many ways to help caregivers avoid the pitfalls of caregiver stress and caregiver burnout. For more information on how that's done, contact us at ADLware today.

As a senior, virtually all of us want to live out life in independence. We don't want to have people hovering over us, we don't want to be put into a home. But let's be honest, we do need some help... some of the time. Well, home care allows for just that. Rather than receiving constant care, or being put into a home, home care allows for caregivers to take care of us, when we need it.

You'd think that with an improvement in medicine and technology, we'd be a healthier country, however, that's not the case. A recent study done by JAMA showed that the baby boomer generation is more over-weight and has higher cholesterol than their parents generation. At ADLware Home Care Software we've seen this trend as well. Below are a few startling points from the JAMA study:
- Some 50 percent of baby boomers get no regular physical exercise
- Around 40 percent of baby boomers are considered obese
- About 14 percent of baby boomers have diabetes
Those are alarming numbers, but they can be combated. Take the time now to turn your life around for the better. Get active, even if its just a little bit each day. At ADLware Home Care Software we encourage all seniors to live a healthy lifestyle. Keep your body young and your brain younger. You'll never regret it.

Private Duty Home Care is rapidly growing. If you have not seen or felt it yet, enjoy your last moments. A push is naturally moving the industry to in-home (inhome) senior and non-senior care. Accountable care organizations (ACO) are quickly finding the best way to manage expensive care needs is via caregivers rather than the traditional nurses model. When responsible for their own budgets, the way they spend will rapidly change. National Association of Home care and Hospice (NAHC) shared an interesting article today about the changes in Hospice reimbursement as well. Some of the traditional overlap between Home Care and Hospice Care is no longer going to be reimbursed. The NAHC article stated:
"FY2014 Hospice Wage Index proposal that included some details of the portion of the proposed rule related to multiple diagnoses on hospice claims and specifically hospices’ use of ‘debility’, ‘adult failure to thrive’, and dementia as the principal diagnosis."
"CMS indicated that hospices should not use these diagnoses as the principal diagnosis, and that in the future they will return to provider (RTP) claims with ‘debility’ or ‘adult failure to thrive’ as the principal diagnoses. In the CMS Open Door Forum (ODF) on May 8, 2013 CMS indicated that instruction to contractors for RTPing these claims would be coming out soon. No particular date was given but it is clear that CMS has warned providers about the need to RTP claims and that providers should not be coding these diagnoses as the principal diagnosis." FULL ARTICLETask vs Care is often blurred, but think of it in the way payments are made. Home Care (Private Duty) is a function of Care, reimbursement based on the quality of care and client satisfaction. Partnering in care with families, Hospice and Home Health provide in-home care services that are task based, based on doctors orders and administered by health professionals.We are watching a government shift, and the number of seniors is increasing. As a result, seniors and those in need of care are becoming the "customer" and quality of care will be critical as competition increases. Seniors and their families will expect Quality Care management from all care providers and will have more control over who provides the services, particularly when more services will be care based vs the more expensive professional task based.

Making your house a home care friendly house, is an important step in preparing to receive caregivers. While caregivers will work in most conditions, the more you prepare your house for caregiving the easier time caregivers will have taking care of you. Here is what you should do:

While these are just a couple ideas of what you can do, there are many more suggestions you can get from various home care agencies. As always, look for agencies with home care software. This will ensure that the agencies are serious about taking care of you.
