The Wellbeing section of the app focuses on you – the caregiver. If you haven’t taken a Wellness Survey yet and are just getting started, you’ll see a blank graph that reads “no entries for this metric” and the option below to Take Wellness Survey.
Taking a Wellness Survey
Wellness Surveys are based on an evaluation called the Caregiver Strain Index. This 13-question survey is designed to be taken more than once (even weekly) to keep tabs on how you are doing mentally and emotionally as a caregiver. The survey is easy to take, and you can adjust the slider based on how you’re feeling for each question. Once you’ve taken the survey, click I’m Ready!
Finishing your Wellness Survey will add your score to the chart, and will also give you Key Areas where you can learn strategies for coping with the complexities that come with caregiving.
If you click on any of the key focus cards, you can set up an action plan to help know what steps you can take next for your specific caregiving journey.
