ChartaCloud Announces Corporate Benefit Solution for Employees with Aging Parents
October 01 2016Company Introduces MyHomeReach as the First System Focused on Reducing Absenteeism and Lowering Personal Stress and Distractions for Employees Who Are Caring for Parents Aging at Home ChartaCloud Technologies (“ChartaCloud”), via its health care business unit ChartaCares and in partnership with HealthComms, announced today that it is offering the industry’s first health care management HR solution specifically focused on helping employees manage the social, life style and health care needs of their aging parents. The system is being introduced as a corporate sponsored benefit.
“Employees and their companies have an escalating need to work cooperatively to address the issues that arise from an increasing number of aging parents that look to their children – who are their employees - for health care oversight, assistance and care management. The number of ‘baby boomers’ whose care needs are rapidly becoming a major focus of concern and attention for the children of these aging parents will exceed 43 million and will soon grow to 84 million. Absenteeism and unexpected events create enormous stress on both the employee and the business. With our system called MyHomeReach TM both absenteeism, stress and distractions can be significantly reduced lessening everyone’s productivity losses,” said Lauryn Schimmel, managing director ChartaCloud.
MyHomeReach, provides a unified system that enables parents, aging at home to ‘one touch’ their health status with an “I’M Ok” button, establish connections to their primary caregivers, launch video-based telepresence sessions, be reminded of medication schedules and appointments, instantly engage family members as to issues and concerns, notify them by electronic verification of scheduled care giver visits and order life style services such as medications, a taxi or a grocery delivery from approved local providers.
“With MyHomeReach care giving adult children can have constant oversight as to the status of their aging parents. Offered as a corporate benefit it makes enormous employer sense. It helps reduce the need for adult children “sandwiched” as caregivers to go and see what’s happening with their parent’s at their homes or need to leave work unexpectedly to investigate a care related circumstance. Everyone involved in elderly parental care is connected in and through a single common caregiver system. Provided as a corporate benefit, this service provides employers with a solution that reduces absenteeism, unplanned work interruptions and helps reduce employee stress leading to better employee health. It is a triple win for all – employers, employees and their aging parents.” Schimmel concluded.
As a Hewlett-Packard Business Partner, ChartaCloud also makes MyHomeReach available optionally in a complete solution package that includes Hewlett-Packard computer tablets.
