Monarcares LLC (http://www.monarcares.com) is the recipient of the 2012 Caregiver Friendly® award (media category). Monarcares.com is a secure, private online care management system that not only helps caregivers care for their loved ones, but also helps them improve the quality of their own lives.
The award is presented by Today's Caregiver, the first national magazine for all family and professional caregivers, and caregiver.com. The Caregiver Friendly® Awards are designed to celebrate products, services, books and media created with the needs of caregivers in mind.
More than 65 million people serve as caregivers for aging loved ones and those with chronic disease or disability, according to a study by the National Alliance for Caregiving.
“The average caregiver is responsible for over $40,000 in health related expenditures each year, in either personal or directed funds,” said Gary Barg, Today’s Caregiver magazine’s Editor-in-Chief. “This award is designed to help family caregivers recognize and reward those organizations who will care for them in as committed a manner as they care for their loved ones.”
Monarcares designed a web application with productivity tools and specialized features that empower caregivers to create Caregiving Circles™ to organize, manage and facilitate the long-term care of their loved one with far less stress and far greater efficiency and effectiveness than ever before.
With Monarcares, the essential information caregivers need is organized and accessible via the Cloud in a private and secure online environment. Time-saving tools to manage medications, finances and other caregivers are provided.
Since 2007, the Founder and President of Monarcares, Robert Rosenberg, has provided care for his aging parents and in-laws. Rosenberg, an alumnus of Stanford University and a seasoned assisted living executive, developed the application with his understanding of caregiving from both a personal and a business perspective.
“We are excited and humbled to receive this award,” Rosenberg said. “The role of the family caregiver is going to increase exponentially as the population ages. Our goal is to provide a platform that changes the caregiving dynamic, and makes life easier and more productive for all parties affected. I believe Monarcares achieves that.”
