Senior Care PACE: Convenience Increases Engagement
Think about how often you send or receive a text message. Messaging is the most common form of communication on mobile devices. Why is this the case? Messaging is convenient for both the sender and receiver. After all, we are far more likely to pause our busy days for 30 seconds to respond to a message, than we are to find the uninterrupted time to place a phone call.
So, what does this have to do with PACE? Since you cannot have your eyes on your participants 24/7, and most negative events leading to a hospitalization occur at home, family caregivers are your essential partner in keeping your participants living independently. Like you, family caregivers are busy. That’s why they turned to PACE for help. Messaging is a simple, convenient, and an accepted form of communication for you and your participant families.
