White House - Caregiver Data Jam on July 23

America is experiencing is a caregiver crisis for military and civilian families. The CareLinx Team is proud and pleased that our CEO Sherwin Skeik has been invited to Washington, DC to participate in a Caregiver Data Jam, a design and data-focused workshop by Joining Forces, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and AARP. The July 23, 2014 workshop brings together technologists, designers and policy makers to brainstorm new services, tools and apps to support America’s caregivers and the individuals they serve. 

Joining Forces is a White House initiative started three years ago by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to engage all sectors of society to give service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned. 

The National Alliance for Caregiving has just published a report for the Jam, "Catalyzing Technology to Support Family Caregiving". CareLinx is included on a Technology Solutions chart under "finding home care" (page 6). 

CareLinx is a secure home care social network that empowers families to directly connect with compatible caregivers and cost-effectively manage all their home care services online. Explore our website at CareLinx.com and follow us on facebook.com/CareLinx
