Using Care3 as a Care Team of One
You want to use Care3, but you don't have a team of family or friends around you that can help? First, we want you to think very hard about that. Do you really not have anyone who would help you in a time of need? If so, add those people to your Care Team.
If not, Care3 still has you covered. You can use our Starter Care Plan feature for organizing care tasks by setting yourself up as a Care Team of one. Here's how:
- Tap the Care Team icon in the upper right corner of the home screen to create your Care Team
- Choose your role (we recommend Loved One so you can add medications and emergency/insurance information into the profile).
- In the Primary field of the Add to Care Team screen, tap and choose By Phone or Email Address. Type the same email address that you used to sign up for Care3. This tells the system that you're assuming both the Loved One AND Primary role.
- Tap "save" and you will see that your Care Team is created with only you. The Starter Care Plan dialog pops up and you can then "get started" creating your care task to-do list.
Once you've completed setting up the Starter Care Plan, simply tap the "start plan" button and the new conversation will appear.
You will see the Action Messages applicable for that day and the next day. You can accept those Actions and they will appear as your to-do list when you tap the Calendar icon from the home Conversations screen. You're all set to care for your loved one as a Care Team of One.
Even if you are the only one caring for your loved one, Care3 is with you, so you're never alone.
