12:11:23     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Community : Robert Leach contact information: rleach@gmail.com

12:11:41     From  Nicole Smith : Mitch has a new book out: the stranger in the lifeboat

12:16:11     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Community : Here is Mitch Albom page on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/stores/Mitch-Albom/author/B000AQ79EY?ref=ap_rdr&store_ref=ap_rdr&isDramIntegrated=true&shoppingPortalEnabled=true

12:17:33     From  Nathalie de Vazeille   to   Hosts and panelists : I think that StackCare would have been a wonderful tool for you. StackCare is a passive monitoring system which detects potential falls and issues and send alerts to your phone, to let you know your loved ones need help.

12:25:51     From  Joe Sperling : How do we balance desire for information with HIPAA regs?

12:26:41     From  Joan Rubin-Kritz : Having been a skilled nursing facility social worker for 21 years, I feel that there are many factors that you haven't recognized which impact communication between staff and family members.

12:27:28     From  madhu mehta   to   Hosts and panelists : This story are heart breaking

12:28:13     From  Mike Harrigan : have you studied the stressors and challenges that family caregivers face?

12:28:55     From  Nicole Smith : Happy Healthy Caregiver is a good self care resource

12:29:05     From  madhu mehta   to   Hosts and panelists : I am 75 can manage my life but going forward I have concerns on how to navigate life

12:29:47     From  Nicole Smith : how do you get the app?

12:32:17     From  madhu mehta   to   Hosts and panelists : technologies are challenging  also scary

12:32:23     From  Nicole Smith : Have to designate a family member or point person to communicate with the entire family. A quarterback for care

12:36:15     From  Nicole Smith : Have to set clear ground rules about communication from the onset of the relationship.

12:48:31     From  Mike Harrigan : Who pays for the app?  The family or the caregiver facility?

12:48:33     From  sharon egitton   to   Hosts and panelists : Does your app integrate with the current RCMS (resident care management systems), so that it’s not another tool and piece of technology that needs to be adopted and used. There are many companies out there trying to help with real issues and needs in senior living, but there’s not enough integrations and lessening of work going on. What current databases have you created API’s for?

12:48:36     From  Joan Rubin-Kritz : So it seems that the app needs a full-time admin to ensure that privacy is maintained.

12:49:02     From  Nicole Smith : Looks good but I don't think caregiver supervisors have time to approve photos? I like the giving subscription and the anonymity.

12:52:44     From  sharon egitton : I like the app idea. Not sure how a community could effectively manage all functions without an additional staff member who's sole role might be updating information all day. Still, I like the platform. I'd be interested in more information piloting the program.

12:58:54     From  Karen Isailovic : I need to jump off for another meeting, enjoyed the discussion.

12:59:43     From  Selina Coulbourne : I think that this is a great idea and an app like this for senior care is so needed. I am an APS Specialist and a caregiver for my aging mother who is failing, and am very aware of how important good communication is between NF staff and families. If my mother ends up in a NF, it would certainly give me peace of mind knowing that I would get daily, personal updates about her. Thank you!

12:59:53     From  Carla Andersen : Cool, for sure and Brilliant! Thank you everyone

13:03:14     From  Nathalie de Vazeille : Thank you! Very interesting!
