ConnectAde is a simple, yet thorough, step-by-step process for anyone either currently caring for an aging loved one or proactively preparing for life down the road. ConnectAde empowers families to easily determine needs, research and find services, and disseminate information to the family in one coherent package. Access to the services available at connectade.com requires a free membership. Once you create your account, you begin by simply entering your ZIP code and your loved one's ailment, such as Alzheimer's disease, diabetes or general fragility. From there, ConnectAde will generate a care action plan including potential scenarios, options to consider, and decisions to make based on your situation.
ConnectAde allows you create linked accounts for multiple family members to easily coordinate care. Communicating through discussion forums and keeping information such as appointments and important phone numbers in one location helps you consolidate all the communication involved in caregiving.
