While “caregiver” may appear to be a formal designation, for us, it is simply anyone who helps care for another person; a parent taking care of their children, a spouse taking care of another spouse, a daughter or son taking care of an elder parent are all caregivers. Regardless of what version you are, caregiving often means new and sometimes overwhelming amounts of activities to manage. This is why we created LikePaper, to help caregivers.
Caregiving has received a lot of increased focus in recent years due to large demographic shifts in the average age of our citizens, as well as the negative economic impact in lost wages, productivity, and absenteeism. Today, it is estimated that more than 1 in 5 American adults provide unpaid care to another adult with health or functional needs. The impact is felt by all living generations and the new Administration is currently exploring ways to help alleviate the societal burden through financial incentives and tax credits. Our hope is that LikePaper can be a useful tool for self-care or for organizing all your caregiving needs.
