One of the interesting revelations that occurred in the development of the OurFamilyWizard® website was to see families sign-up for the service not to manage their parenting relationship, but rather to manage the care of their elder parents. We have had many families sign-up for the service and flip the roles to meet their needs. So instead of the parent having a parent account, they have the elder parent setup with a child account and the child takes on the parent account. This allows the children of an elder parent the ability to go into the website and setup shared records for a schedule, medical records, journals and more.
This shared access can increase a family’s ability to make sure their elder parent is being thoroughly taken care of. Also, the OurFamilyWizard® website provides a means to keep a shared repository of information such as medical records, doctor’s visits, and prescriptions.
You can also use the OurFamilyWizard® professional account to give access to elder care providers and doctors. The third party account is a great way to keep the rest of the family in the loop without sacrificing your elder parent’s privacy.
